UWA Forward

Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. Some fantastic news from the UWA Law School this week. Assistant Professor Kate Offer and Associate Dean Natalie Skead have won the Innovative Curriculum Award by the International Association of Law Schools. Later this month, Kate will also be awarded a Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning from the Office of Teaching and Learning. Congratulations to both Kate and Natalie!

Of course, we all strive to provide the best possible education to our students. I’m pleased to announce this week that the University is undertaking a comprehensive Review of Courses. If you’d like to contribute your thoughts on any aspect of the undergraduate new courses framework, I encourage you to make a written submission to the Review Panel, which will meet on 18-20 November 2015.

Sincerely,
Professor Paul Johnson
Vice-Chancellor

Forward Focus

Teaching Innovation Pays Off

Kate Offer loves teaching Law. More than that, she loves to experiment with how she teaches Law. The Assistant Professor’s passion – and experiments – will be recognised later this month with a Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning from the Federal Education Department’s Office of Teaching and Learning.

I’m a torts lawyer, so I knew it couldn’t look too real. I didn’t want anyone to call triple-0, so we deliberately made it a bit cartoonish.

Kate could not be more delighted with the award, which recognises those who have made a significant contribution to the quality of student learning over a sustained period.
