In Term 3 2010 I was awarded as one of the top 10 Course Coordinators (SKIL40025) who achieved the highest response rate for their course as well as the highest satisfaction rate for a course.
I have project managed and course coordinated a short non-award HEPPP project/ course called Preparation for Success in Health. This course was 5 weeks in duration and prepared high school students for further studies in health. As well it gave them guidance and direction around what sorts of skills and knowledge were required to successfully navigate university.
I have worked as an Associate Lecturer in STEPS. As well as this I also previously worked in the Student Support Centre as a lecturer and Program Coordinator in the Lift Program.
Previous to the above I worked as a teacher teaching various ages in Australian schools/ high schools as well as teaching primary aged children in Japan and the UK.
I was part of and worked with Professor Leone Hinton on a CQUniversity 2011 Teaching and Learning Grant that looked at, "A descriptive study of the factors involved in obtaining student feedback: Designing practical strategies to increase student response rates".
