More than 20 school principals and teachers from across WA got the chance to share ideas and also develop mutually beneficial partnerships at Edith Cowan University’s (ECU’s) annual Principal's Lunch.
Hosted by ECU Vice-Chancellor Professor Kerry Cox, the group gathered at Degrees Restaurant – ECU’s hospitality training facility – for a networking lunch.
For ECU staff, the event was a valuable chance to learn how the University can better engage with students.
Principals and teachers were treated to presentations from the Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean of Education and Arts, Professor Lynne Cohen, who shared the University’s own learning journey through the implementation of the Curriculum 2012 initiative.
Student Liaison Manager Jackie Moffatt spoke about ECU’s new ideas to better engage with students and enhance their first-year experience.
Following lunch, the group toured ECU’s state-of-the-art engineering building. The building, which opened this year, is home to the University’s renowned motorsports program, world-class engineering facilities and the University’s Electron Science Research Centre.
A similar event will be held for principals in the south west region later in the year.
