Transformative learning

1. A culture of transformative learning in a research-enriched environment

Learning and teaching is at the centre of our purpose. Macquarie University has already developed a number of innovative education programs and student experiences that are transforming lives. We will:

  • offer experiences, within formal settings and beyond, that change the lives of our students, support them in achieving their aspirations and provide an incubator for the next generation of leaders
  • expand PACE as a signature program that distinguishes this University
  • infuse cutting edge technology into our learning environment to deliver world-class learning and teaching on campus and online
  • develop and lead in teaching models that promote enquiry-driven learning and prepare students for productive professional and civic lives
  • imbue our academic and professional staff with a culture of transformative learning, expand their horizons and nurture their capabilities.
