A researcher based at the SMART Infrastructure Facility is among the recipients of the University of Wollongong’s 2014 Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Outstanding Contribution to Teaching and Learning (OCTAL).
The OCTALs are awarded each year to staff who have made a major contribution to teaching and learning excellence within the University of Wollongong. Postdoctoral Research Fellow Dr Michelle Dunbar was recognised with an OCTAL Early Career Faculty award for her teaching practice to date, but most specifically in relation to lecturing MATH283 (Advanced Engineering Mathematics) in August 2013.
UOW Vice-Chancellor Paul Wellings said the awards provide “a chance to celebrate a select group of researchers, teachers and professional staff who have helped underlay the success of UOW.”
Dr Dunbar was nominated for the award by a number of her students.
