VICE-CHANCELLOR’S LEARNING AND TEACHING EARLY CAREER AWARD

Winner: Alexandra Bhatti

“I provide stimulating experiences by utilising a variety of resources, including virtual bulletin boards, real-time in-class quizzes and a package of bespoke interactive online resources I developed, which allow students to tailor their learning experience and enable active learning.”


VICE-CHANCELLOR’S EDUCATIONAL LEADER AWARD

Winner: Professor Catherine Dean

“I established the Health and Wellbeing Collaboration as an early clinical experience for physiotherapy and medical students to work interprofessionally with volunteers in the community – listening to their personal stories of managing their own health and making choices about healthcare. The program develops our students’ communication skills, but also provides valuable insights into current problems in healthcare, such as difficulty in access, fragmented care and funding.”


VICE-CHANCELLOR’S AWARD FOR LEARNING INNOVATION

Team Winners: Associate Professor Kira Westaway, Michael Rampe and Matthew Cabanag

 “REIM (Reality Embedded in Motion) was born out of a desire to provide students with an authentic learning environment that would take them to places we could never normally go and to push the virtual reality revolution into education. Together, we’re shaping the future of immersive technologies at Macquarie.”

– Associate Professor Kira Westaway


VICE-CHANCELLOR’S LEARNING AND TEACHING SESSIONAL STAFF AWARD

Winner: Lauren Florentia Ehrenfeld

“As part of the behavioural change intervention, I undertake one-on-one consultations with my students, which helps them in tailoring and refining an intervention that is personally relevant. My genuine passion for psychological intervention facilitates greater commitment of my time and resources, but ultimately is best for students.”
