Biography

Sarah has recently commenced as a Lecturer in Learning & Teaching Development, Impact and Recognition within QUT’s Academy of Learning and Teaching (QALT). Immediately prior to this, Sarah lectured and unit coordinated large undergraduate mathematics and engineering units, while also providing student support through one-to-one consultations, drop-in sessions, workshops, and embedded resources as a STEM Educator in the Student Success Group. Sarah’s commitment to learning and teaching has been recognised by a number of awards including a Citation for Early Career Contribution to Engineering Education (2019), Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (2019) and a Vice Chancellor’s Award for Excellence (2017).

Sarah’s background is in modelling and simulation, having completed her PhD investigating red blood cell shape and deformability from a numerical modelling perspective. Sarah’s current research interests are in engineering education, student success, and learning analytics. Her most significant project to date has been investigating the impact of worked example videos as part of blended learning designs. Her YouTube channel, houses many of the video resources produced through this project.
