Bond University Associate Professor of Law Leon Wolff has been awarded the prestigious Australian Office for Learning and Teaching (formerly the ALTC) Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning.
Associate Professor Wolff was the only Queenslander and one of three law educators in Australia to receive this recognition, awarded for his pioneering use of narrative methodology in a first year law course, which provides students with an authentic, inquiry-based entry into the discipline of law with immediate results.
Faculty of Law Dean Professor Geraldine Mackenzie congratulated Professor Wolff on his achievement.
“To be awarded an Australian OLT Citation is a commendable honour as it recognises Associate Professor Wolff as one of the nation’s best providers of innovative and inspiring teaching, and re-affirms Bond’s commitment to exceptional learning and teaching,” said Professor Mackenzie.
“I congratulate Leon on his remarkable achievement and thank him for his professionalism, expertise and dedication to the student learning experience,” she said.
Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning recognise and reward the diverse and significant contributions made by individual and team academic, general, and sessional staff or institutional associates to the quality of student learning in a specific area of responsibility over a sustained period.
The Minister for Tertiary Education, Senator Chris Evans announced the Australian OLT Citations in September with recipients honoured at award ceremonies nationally earlier this month.
