Associate Professor Kwong Nui Sim is the associate dean of learning and teaching at SISTC after being the Learning, Teaching and Innovation Manager at International College of Management Sydney for a short term. Prior to this, she was seconded as a senior advisor/senior lecturer at Graduate Research School in Auckland University of Technology in conjunction with her position of Senior Lecture/Learning and Teaching Consultant at AUT Learning Transformation LAB (altLAB), Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand. From 2015 to September 2020, she was an academic developer/lecturer at the Centre for Academic Development, Victoria University of Wellington.

Kwong Nui’s research field is Information Communication Technologies (ICT) and its use in tertiary educational environments, focusing on ICT beliefs and practices (software and tools use) for students and academics, which then informs ICT use in teaching, learning and researching (TLR). The applied nature of her research aligns with her academic development role and directly informs her practices at higher education institutions. For example, the findings from her Ako Aotearoa Regional Hub Fund project in 2018 informed the need to support the use of ICT in doctoral research processes in her unit and other faculties at VUW. Being an executive member at FLANZ (Flexible Learning Association of New Zealand) as well as a treasurer at HERDSA branch in New Zealand, Kwong Nui believes that she can make a strong contribution to HERDSA community through her service and scholarship as well as to gain support from such an advanced community for her enthusiasm to develop her research capabilities further that will lead her to a more confident involvement in the higher education domain.
