Western Sydney University has welcomed 19 new Advance Higher Education Fellows as part of its partnership with Advance Higher Education, an international body promoting excellence in higher education.
The Fellows are academic and professional staff at the University whose education, teaching and learning practices are internationally recognised and meet the UK Professional Standards Framework. It is a significant achievement that Western staff can now provide evidence of the international quality of their teaching.
Western Sydney University Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Barney Glover AO, commended the University Fellows for their contribution.
“The Western Educational Fellowship Scheme brings together staff who are advancing the way in which Western Sydney University delivers education,” said Professor Glover.
“Many of the Fellows are involved in the University’s innovative work to transform its curriculum through the 21st Century Curriculum Project. That project is reimagining the University’s approach to teaching, to meet the opportunities and challenges of the current century.”
The new Fellows were recently celebrated at an event hosted by Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President (Academic) Professor Denise Kirkpatrick and Pro Vice-Chancellor (Learning Futures) Professor Simon Barrie at the Parramatta City campus.
The University’s Advance Higher Education Fellows, now a community of 41 people, join over 2000 Australian-based Fellows and over 200,000 Fellows globally, all working on innovative education practices that keep students at the heart of university curricula.
