Great teachers recognised

20 August 2013

Three Macquarie University lecturers have received Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning from the Office of Learning and Teaching.

Ms Jean Brick (Linguistics) received a citation for excellence in fostering student understanding of the interconnection of language and content, and for inspiring students to express their own voice in academic and professional contexts.

Dr Matthew Bulbert’s (Biological Sciences) citation was for designing an innovative teaching and support framework that enhances student participation, resourcefulness and creative critical thinking.

Dr Sabine Krajewski (Media, Music and Cultural Studies) received a citation for developing inclusive approaches to assessment that foster independent learning and build intercultural competence for linguistically and culturally diverse graduate students.

Citations recognise and reward the diverse contribution that individuals and teams make to the quality of student learning. Citations are awarded to academic, general and sessional staff, and institutional associates, who have made significant contributions to student learning in a specific area of responsibility over a sustained period of no less than three years.
