Mr. Bernard Yegiora
Department of PNG Studies & International Relations
Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences
This is my seventh year of teaching international relations at Divine Word University. I joined the University in 2012.
My area of specialty is in international relations theory and foreign policy. I am also fascinated with the rise of China and have since written my Honours sub-thesis and Master’s dissertation on the Chinese economic reforms and Chinese soft power respectively.
My teaching and learning methods are based on my philosophy of education and my personality. I see myself as not a giver of knowledge but a facilitator. I facilitate the transfer and flow of knowledge to students who use the knowledge for their own betterment.
Thus apart from using the traditional methods of teaching, I am more into using technology especially social media to share knowledge with students. This ‘blended’ approach complements the use of Moodle by Divine Word University.
I am also a member of the Faculty Curriculum and Assessment Committee and the Quality Assurance Committee. The function of both is focused on quality assurance
