Much of Chi's work focuses on the development of policies and programs to promote and recognise effective university teaching.

Chi coordinates and teaches in the University's Graduate Certificate in University Teaching (GCUT). She has developed a range of professional development programs for academic teaching staff and has led university-wide initiatives to enhance the training and support of sessional teachers. She is regularly invited to conduct teaching and learning seminars and workshops for university staff.
