About Associate Professor Liz Angstmann

A/Prof Elizabeth (Liz) Angstmann is an education focussed academic in the School of Physics and has been a Scientia Education Academy Fellow since 2018.

Liz has been the first year director in the school of physics since 2011, she is responsible for the education of thousands of students each year. During her time as first year director, she has introduced many changes to how first year physics courses run, where possible utilising technology to efficiently teach and assess students while concurrently improving the learning experience by encouraging students to be actively engaged. In 2013, Liz introduced an online course, ‘Everyday Physics’, which exemplifies her teaching philosophy: it engages students by presenting them with everyday objects and phenomena, before presenting the physics describing how they work. This elective course is taken by hundreds of students each semester.
