Message from the Director - Prof Wendy Kilfoil

The vision of the Department for Education Innovation is: "Creating synergy towards innovative education environments for student engagement and success".  We live this vision by working in teams within the department and across the University.

We have two purposes:

  • to improve the quality of teaching in a variety of blended modes: face-to-face but with the addition of technology and media, online and at community sites of learning; and
  • to provide and improve opportunities for student academic development, retention and success.

The department employs teams of experts in the fields of education, community engagement, instructional design, graphic design, videography, photography, communication technology, educational research and student academic development.

We work in a symbiotic relationship with individual lecturers, departments, schools and Faculties to pilot new teaching and learning ideas and technologies as well as student development interventions. We collaborate with academics on the scholarship of teaching and learning so that improvements are based on rigorous research.
