Following two years of lockdown disruptions, 2022 saw students and staff return to the beautiful Wallumattagal Campus.
Pro Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching), Professor Dominique Parrish, summarises key milestones and achievements of the portfolio in the 2022 Learning and Teaching Year in Review.
Many of our portfolio’s achievements over the past year are initiatives and projects that have been delivered with students as partners and co-creators. It is affirming to see how these initiatives are improving the learning experience of our students or supporting staff to deliver quality learning and teaching experiences, online and in the classroom.
I am genuinely appreciate of the commitment of staff in the portfolio as well as colleagues across Macquarie University for their contributions to learning and teaching and students. I am so immensely proud to be part of the united and collaborative effort of our learning and teaching community.Professor Dominique Parrish, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching)
