Description

Dr Thea Voogt won the overall BEL Teaching Award for 2017 for her teaching in Income Tax Law, a compulsory course for most commerce students, with a cohort of 300 students per semester. She is an inspiring, engaged teacher who applies an innovative, personalised, student-centred, technology-driven collaborative learning approach in LAWS3101. Her pedagogical philosophy of Ubuntu – I am because we are – has made a significant and unique contribution to teaching the law to commerce students in three ways: engaging effectively and respectfully one-on-one with students in a large group setting; facilitating structured, inquiry-based learning through a comprehensive mixed-methods approach to enhance the quality of student learning in a highly technical, ever-changing Australian country-specific subject; inspiring students to learn through her demonstrable commitment to income tax law in this CA ANZ tertiary-accredited course, deep engagement with quality collaborative learning, and by breaking down cultural and communication barriers in a diverse student group, the majority of whom are international students.

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 was also 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.
