Dr. Elaine Chew Yin Teng is an Associate Professor and Capstone Coordinator in the School of Business, Monash University Malaysia. She completed a bachelor's degree in Business at Monash University, Australia, and received the Golden Key award for academic achievement. Elaine completed her Master's and Ph.D. (Nagoya University) in Japan under Monbukagakusho scholarships.

Elaine’s major research interests are human resource management and business strategy. Some of the past publications that she co-authored are in good-ranked journals such as Human Resource Management (Top 50 journals in the Financial Times), International Journal of Human Resource Management, Annals of Tourism Research, and Tourism Management. She supervises Honours and Ph.D. students in areas such as psychological contract, expatriate management, organizational psychology, CSR, and tourism.

At Monash, she teaches two capstone units, International Business Strategies at the Master level and Integrative Business Practices at the undergraduate level. A strong believer in research-led teaching, Elaine always incorporate research findings and current trends into teaching. Elaine has been awarded one commendation from the Australian government for representing Monash University Australia for Australian Learning and Teaching Council (ALTC) citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning. Her passion for continuous improvement in enhancing students’ critical thinking skills and employability skills have brought her to employ various active learning teaching pedagogies to demystify management and entrepreneurial units. Some of the pedagogies are such as critical inquiry, feedback-driven learning loop, scaffolding, contextualization, and story-telling. Elaine’s continuous improvement has also been rewarded with five PVC Teaching Excellence awards.

Recognizing students’ career aspirations, Elaine always revitalizes learning content and resources to maintain the currency of learning with real-time industry changes in order to foster students’ holistic learning experience and employability skills. Past real-time industry topics that are aligned to task assessments and learning around business development for BEW3555 are such as aging population, Industry 4.0, the uprising of China in 2016-2017; and shared economy and the application of digital platform as business channels in 2018.

Another major innovative initiative is the revamp of the capstone unit of Bachelor of Business and Commerce - Integrative Business Practices (BEW3555) and continuous improvement since Semester 2 2016. In sync with the rising appetite of millennials in business start-ups, the unit was redesigned to equip students with stronger business acumen (e.g., business canvas, business plan) via feedback-driven teaching pedagogy. We have received many positive feedbacks from alumni on the usefulness of their learning experience in BEW3555 for employability.

The collaboration with a former IBM consultant in 2019 to facilitate design thinking workshops has resulted in motivating testimonies by Master students about their employment and performance. While this effective teaching was disrupted by the pandemic, Elaine has revamped the capstone unit in Master of International Business. By taking an activity-driven approach to implementing ‘step-wise’ knowledge-building, the scaffolding effort has received testimonies of how these teaching innovations in times of disruption had supported students’ in the online learning space.

Elaine has worked with SMECorp on a government-to-government skill transfer project. She has been an invited speaker for a few HR conferences (i.e., Global HR Excellence by Marcus Evans). She actively reviews manuscripts for top-tier journals and engages with industries.
