Professor Philippa Pattison AO

Education at the University of Sydney is undergoing a significant renewal. Since 2014, we have been working together towards a distinctive, forward-looking curriculum which will deliver outstanding outcomes for our students. Our vision is for a revitalised campus-based educational environment, which includes improvements, innovation and commitment in the following areas:

  • Experiential and engaged inquiry-based learning that is both challenging and fulfilling;
  • Cultural competence, interdisciplinary opportunities and leadership opportunities for all of our students;
  • A unique and student-focused educational environment that fosters positive and rewarding learning experiences;
  • Meaningful learning outcomes, through an engaged monitoring system built on formative feedback and assessment.

By focusing on outstanding learning outcomes for our students and the educational approaches that have been demonstrated to deliver them, we can prepare our students for the increasingly competitive, fluid and challenging work environments of the future.
