Congratulations to WAAPA’s Associate Professor Andrew Lewis and Mr Micheál McCarthy, who have both been selected to receive 2010 Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning, presented by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council.
The citations, valued at $10,000 each, are awarded to both academic and professional staff who have demonstrated ongoing dedication to improving their student's learning experiences.
Program Director (Performance) Professor Lewis, was recognised for his innovative and cross–disciplinary approach to screen and theatre acting, which successfully engages and motivates students, while Senior Lecturer, Mr McCarthy, was recognised for his unique approach to aural training that inspires students and provides effective musical training.
Both Mr McCarthy and Professor Lewis are thrilled to be recognised with the award.
“It’s an honour to be nominated by ECU for such an award and for teaching to be recognised in this way,” said Mr McCarthy.
Professor Lewis and Mr McCarthy, along with the other WA recipients, will be presented with the citations at the Perth Town Hall on Wednesday, 11 August.
