I am delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Alison Lugg to the Higher Ed team. Alison has a rich background in secondary teaching and ITE. She taught and led PE, Human Development, Outdoor Education and English in secondary settings for more than 10 years and has worked in ITE at the University of Melbourne, University of Edinburgh, and most recently at La Trobe. She has held program manager roles, overseeing undergraduate, Grad Dip and Masters of Teaching programs. Alison is an AITSL panelist and has recently led La Trobe through the development of new Bachelor and Masters programs.
Alison has a deep commitment to sustainability education and was instrumental in the OLT-funded SUSTAINed project, building a national practitioner-led action network for sustainability educators across the tertiary sector.
Alison interviewed with us several months ago and the panel was impressed by her depth of experience in ITE, her warm, calm and reflective approach and her positivity. Alison’s appointment has been some time in the making and I am delighted to have it now properly formalised.
Alison will commence in January. I know you will make Alison feel welcome.
