Innovators in Education
Monash University Malaysia has recently awarded Dr. New Jaa Yien and A/Prof. Cathy Yule education grants to support pedagogical developments and innovations through their Better Teaching, Better Learning Education Grant Scheme.
Dr. New's project entitled "Investigating students' and teachers' expectations on assessment support and feedback: a cross disciplinary perspective" is a joint project with Dr. Lin Yang (School of Business), Dr. Luc William Borrowman (School of Business) and Dr. Tan Meng Yoe (School of Arts and Social Sciences). This project seeks to examine the effects of pre-university experience on the expectations of university assessment support and feedback as well as the differences between students' and teachers' expectations on first year course assessment support and feedback.

A/Prof. Yule's project entitled "Tropical terrestrial biology - Promoting an exemplary learning experience in the rainforest via videos" is a joint project with Dr. Robyn Wilson (School of Science) and Dr. Yeoh Seng Guan (School of Arts and Social Sciences). They plan to create a series of videos to showcase the Tropical Terrestrial Biology (BIO3820) field trip to Mulu National Park in Borneo, which capitalises on the unique tropical location of the Malaysian campus and provides exemplary teaching and learning opportunities through collaborations between Australia and Malaysia.
