For May 2011 Tony Chalkley has been nominated as Faculty Teacher of the Month in recognition of his outstanding contribution to teaching. 

Tony Chalkley is a lecturer in Media and Communication. His key achievements/activities as a teacher include:

  • Reviewing the current delivery of large/massified foundation units to see how new approaches to assessment might better evaluate the capacity of students (in conjunction with other media communication staff)

  • Working with Deakin University's Division of Student Life to blend the theoretical elements of ‘represented self’ with the practical device that is a student resume (we spend time in tutorials working on the way your resume needs to distinguish your public self)

  • Working with the State University of New York on a 10 year project that looks at the effect of intensive, programmed support for first year students (and their families). This project is focused on the experience of staff/teachers who deliver the programs.

  • Revised and rebuilt the wholly online unit ALC314 to be ‘internationalised’, simple, clear and easier for students. Significant improvement in student engagement, SETU retention and enrolment more generally.

  • Currently a member of the Australasian Housing Institute's Curriculum Accreditation Board - reviewing and accrediting national Housing studies degrees/certificates.

  • Recently completed a joint Oxford University Press book on Communication and New Media.
