Teaching prize!

It was great to end 2014 with a Faculty of Science and Engineering Award for Excellence in Sessional Teaching from Macquarie University.  These awards recognise the increasing contribution of casual academic staff.  This followed winning Second Place in the inaugural Creativity and Contributions in Teaching Award (CACTA) with Matthew Bulbert in 2013 for “Identifying and Understanding Key Findings and Effectively Communicating Scientific Concepts: MRes Tasks Centred on the Seminar Series.”  It is good to be part of a Department and Faculty that recognise innovation in teaching and the contributions of casual staff!
