As you know I recently signalled my intention to focus on my work as Dean of the School of Education. After six years in the DPVC role and two years doing both roles, I have decided to step down from the DPVC role.
I am pleased to announce that Professor Tania Broadley has been appointed the new Deputy Pro Vice-Chancellor for Learning and Teaching in DSC.
Many of you already know Tania through her work in Education.
Tania brings a strong and distinctive record of leadership in higher education, a proven commitment to teaching and learning and an excellent insight and awareness of the importance of the student experience. Most recently through her role as the Assistant Dean (Teaching and Learning) in the Faculty of Education at QUT, Tania provided strategic leadership at the Faculty level and contributed to the wider University priorities. Prior to QUT, Tania established the Curtin Learning Institute at Curtin University. Reporting to the DVC (Academic) she was responsible for providing strategic leadership in academic development and learning space design at the University level.
Tania has worked in online learning leadership in the Curtin Business School and as an academic in educational technology in the School of Education at Curtin. Her research areas are concentrated in the field of educational technologies, academic professional development and teacher education. Professor Broadley completed her PhD in the discipline of education, is on the Teaching Performance Assessment National Expert panel for the most recent teacher education reform agenda, is currently the Queensland representative on the Australian Council of Deans of Education (NADLATE) group and has been a State President and National Board member of the Australian College of Educators.
Tania starts in mid-February 2019 and I’m sure you will join me in welcoming her in the New Year.
