Event description

Description

Income Tax Law is a compulsory course for accounting students and there are usually about 300 students enrolled in the course. The course covers three key pieces of legislation: Income Tax Law, Goods and Services Tax (GST) and Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT). Knowledge from this course is a pre-requisite for students who want to sit the exams to qualifying as chartered accountants. The course challenges business students to adapt their thinking to the style applicable in a legal environment.

Dr Thea Voogt is a chartered accountant with extensive business experience in managing pension funds and in risk management. Her research is focused on governance, board practices and risk. She takes a practical approach and engaging style in this Income Tax Law course and takes particular care to structure lectures so that students get personal value from the real-life application of tax law on their lives across each lecture. She applies the principle of Ubuntu in her teaching: being connected to others, since more than half her students are international students who need perspective about life in Australia to better follow the legislation. Dr Voogt encourages students to invest more time in this technical and detail-driven subject through a 24/7 email facility. The course is delivered through interactive, practical lectures of two hours each week, after which students practice the application of the law in tutorial classes.

Thea is well known for the passion and commitment that she brings to the subject and her strategy to engage with students one-on-one by using an effective email system, even though the class size is large. She was awarded the TC Beirne Law School prize for the best teaching of a compulsory law course in 2015 and the TC Beirne School of Law prize for the most inspiring teacher in 2016.
