Christy Collis is QUT’s 500th Higher Education Academy Fellow. The cultural studies associate professor was accredited last month. This is a big increase on the university’s 250 fellows a couple of years back. With ANU and Murdoch U, QUT was an early ally of the HEA, with authority to accredit its own staff.
The HEA is interested in growing in Australia and certainly demand to demonstrate teaching quality exists, so much that Charles Sturt VC Andrew Vann suggests an accreditation academy of our own, instead of using a UK import (CMM September 18 2017)
