The Academic Development team is available for consultation on teaching methods, assessment and curriculum design, programme (re)structure, academic processes, teaching portfolios, and research on teaching and learning.
Since January, two new academic developers have joined the team: Dr Trevor Nesbit joined us from Ara where he taught accounting and information systems, and he previously taught at UC as well. Trevor got his PhD from UC focusing on educational technology. Dr Brad Hurren joined us from Otago University. He holds a PhD in anatomy and has taught extensively into the large first-year health science courses at Otago. The last academic developer in the team is A/Prof Erik Brogt, who’s been in the role at UC since 2009.
The Academic Development team can collectively be reached via a new email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
