Next Monday 22 October Macquarie will welcome Associate Professor Dominique Parrish as the University’s new Pro-Vice Chancellor, Learning and Teaching.
Dominique joins Macquarie from the University of Wollongong, where she was the Associate Dean (Education) in the Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health. She has more than 30 years’ experience in designing and implementing programs of work in both the tertiary and private sectors.
Her research interests include technology-enhanced learning, learning-oriented assessment, student experience and engagement, and leadership and emotional intelligence. She is the current President of the Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education and a Senior Editor of the Journal of University Teaching and Learning Practice.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Professor Kevin Jameson says Dominque’s appointment will further drive the University’s momentum in transforming the student journey.
“Dominique is a highly qualified educationalist whose expertise in both traditional and digital technologies will help us progress and renew our Learning and Teaching strategy, as we prepare our students for the careers of tomorrow,” he says.
“I know she is looking forward to working closely with colleagues across the University and particularly with faculties as she begins her exciting and important work.
“I’m very pleased to welcome Dominique to the University and am sure our staff community will make her feel welcome also.”
