Dr Kate Carroll
Kate Carroll is a lecturer in the School of Biomedical Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences. She has been teaching science for many years both as a postgraduate student and since the completion of her PhD in Biochemistry. Kate joined Monash in 2014 as an education-focused academic where she teaches anatomy and physiology to allied health students. She is currently undertaking coordination of two new large first year anatomy and physiology units in allied health at Caulfield.
Kate's research interests are on education in science and allied health and focus on student engagement and student-centred learning approaches. She is now working with a team to 'change the way we teach science' to allied health students using an array of new technologies and learning platforms.
Kate has a strong interest in improving the experience of students in their first year of university both educationally and socially. She believes it is important for students to have a well-rounded experience to help them transition and enjoy everything that university life has to offer, from studying to letting your hair down with fellow students after class.
