This month we spoke to Ms Jo Perry from the Adelaide Nursing School. Jo is one of three staff who will be joining the Adelaide Education Academy, Executive Committee, from May this year. Here she explains how she teaches within our rapidly changing environment and uses gamification to engage her students.
This month we spoke to Dr Hong Cai, Scholarly Teaching Fellow within the School of Social Sciences. Hong teaches Chinese languages and linguistics to undergraduate students and translation theories and professional interpreting to MA students in the MAITTC program (Master of Arts [Interpretation, Translation and Transcultural Communication]). In 2019 she was presented with a Stephen Cole the Elder Award for Teaching Excellence, and was nominated for a Citation with the Australian Awards for University Teaching in 2021. She spoke to us about her passion for fostering learners’ autonomy and promoting career readiness and leadership with her students.
