Excellence in teaching

Our students are learning from some of Australia’s best and most highly regarded teachers.

Many of our academic staff have received teaching awards at the faculty, university, national and international level.

Students across the globe have experienced our teaching excellence first-hand through our partnership with edX, the world’s leading collection of massive open online courses (MOOCs) developed by Harvard and MIT. The MOOC ‘Crime 101x: The Psychology of Criminal Justice’ won a 2016 MERLOT Classics award at the Innovate Conference in the USA.

In 2017, we implemented a faculty-wide course to ensure our students are taught the fundamentals of interprofessional care within the context of the Australian Health Care system; and in the same year, the Faculty hosted the University of Toronto Centre for Interprofessional Education to run a series of workshops on Advancing the Future of Healthcare through Interprofessional Learning for our staff and partner institutions.
