Since her teaching career, GMT Emezue has taught several courses at Post Graduate as well as undergraduate levels. She also teaches poetry at FUNAI's school of Foundation Studies. One of her innovative methods of teaching poetry is what Emezue calls "experiential Poetry," where she experiments with audio and multi-media facilities in making poetry real to her students. This experiment started way back at the beginning of the millennium when GMT Emezue observed the dread students have for poetry. Through these experiential programmes, she tries to lead the students to re-discover the joy they had while enjoying poetry as small children in kindergarten classes.


Emezue's major argument in this regard is that the difficulty students experience in their attempt to with understand poetry arises most often from the method of teaching, especially in the upper primary and secondary school levels. Some of the courses she has taught over the years include:
