Teaching and Learning

Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning

Janine McBurnie

For the development of innovative programs that guide undergraduate students through university and support and clarify the development of professional identity.

Drawing on 15 years' experience teaching large first-year classes, Janine McBurnie has built upon the strong pedagogical foundation of transition into first year to initiate a program at Deakin that guides students through university and inspires them to move into rewarding careers. She also convenes a ground-breaking, cross-faculty unit that engages students with their futures through environmental sustainability issues. Outstanding student evaluations, multiple teaching awards and recognition of her transition model institutionally attest to the significance of her contribution.
