Speaking on behalf of the nominating group of Monash Business School Heads of Department, Professor Michelle Welsh said “In leadership, time and energy, our Directors of Education were on the front line in dealing with constant changes to teaching requirements, and were entirely dedicated to ensuring quality learning experiences in the move to incorporate online learning.”
“They ran training sessions, prepared online resources and FAQs, converted teaching resources, and provided extensive one-on-one assistance to their colleagues. The support they provided to their colleagues and the innovations they introduced directly improved the student experience and enabled learning.”
The transition also required a revision of teaching and examination modes, with significant consequences for chief examiners, teaching staff and students.
“Through this, they developed innovative approaches at short notice and communicated with, and provided extensive support to their colleagues to help them deal with the changes. They also supported students in answering their questions about new learning and examination environments,” she says.
