Last week, staff came together for a virtual Learning and Teaching Awards ceremony to recognise this year’s outstanding achievements within our learning and teaching community.

Hosted by Vice-Chancellor Professor S Bruce Dowton, the ceremony celebrated the contributions made by individual teachers, teams and professional staff who make a difference to our students’ learning experience and contribute to their ongoing success.

“The Learning and Teaching Awards are an important milestone each year, but this year particularly they provide the opportunity to recognise and acknowledge the remarkable achievements of our learning and teaching staff,” says Professor Dowton. “The number and quality of nominations has again been outstanding. I would like to thank and congratulate all of our highly commended finalists and winners for their commitment to our students’ engagement and success.”

“These Awards are a personal highlight of the academic year for me,” says Professor Dominique Parrish, PVC (Learning and Teaching). “They offer us a unique opportunity to recognise and thank our learning and teaching community, in what has been a challenging year.

“These awards are integral to our staff who are engaged and dedicated to transforming and progressing learning and teaching at Macquarie”

Congratulations to all the winners.

  1. I was a student, 45536198 who studied English at ELC from March 2019 to March 2020, if I could say about Ms. Trish Behan, I would comment it, Psychological abuse she committed when she interviewed me about my F grades. Moreover, she suggested taking a suspension, I did not have any reason for it. So, I decided NOT to enrol for a Master degree at Macquarie University.
    The definition of Psychological abuse, often called emotional abuse, is a form of abuse, characterized by a person subjecting or exposing another person to behaviour that may result in psychological trauma, including anxiety, chronic depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder. It is often associated with situations of power imbalance in abusive relationships, and may include bullying, gaslighting, and abuse in the workplace. It also may be perpetrated by persons conducting torture, other violence, acute or prolonged human rights abuse, particularly without legal redress such as detention without trial, false accusations, false convictions and extreme defamation such as where perpetrated by state and media.
