Dean's Teaching Awards

01 February 2017

Congratulations to our high-performing colleagues from the School of Chemical Sciences and School of Psychology.

"It’s a distinct thrill to be recognised with a faculty award. As a physical scientist it is perhaps not surprising that my teaching style has developed in a  somewhat organic and experimental manner over the years. My aim has always been to exhibit my passion and enthusiasm for the Chemical Sciences whilst presenting well prepared, rehearsed and engaging lectures that explain difficult concepts and their inter-relationships and relevance, with simple words, clear visual aids, and space for student contribution and participation. A lot of my teaching is in a large class-team teaching context, where I’ve been extremely fortunate to work with other like-minded teachers including Dr Judy Brittain (recently retired), Associate Professor David Barker and more recently, Dr Kaitlin Beare. It’s never a dull moment in front of such large classes!"

"Collaborating with research students is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. This award reflects my students’ hard work and success, and I feel privileged to be part of their research careers."

  • Dr Danny Osborne – School of Psychology
    For exceptional sustained efforts with students

“I’m incredibly honoured to receive this award, as there are so many gifted lecturers throughout the Faculty of Science (and broader University) who are just as, if not more, deserving of this teaching award.”
