Dr Nor Azura started as a tutor at Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Institute of Education back in 2006. After obtaining her master’s degree in 2007, she was appointed lecturer in the university. She went to pursue her graduate studies in Japan and Hong Kong, in 2011 and 2015 respectively. In SHBIE, she continues to teach mathematics education modules for teacher education, both primary and secondary levels. Her initial research interest started from teachers’ pedagogical knowledge and development. It has since expanded into teachers’ values in the teaching and learning of mathematics; and professional development of teachers such as Lesson Study.
