Associate Professor Lutze-Mann, in the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences, is the Deputy Head of School and Director of Teaching.
Louise coordinates Science courses on Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology and also coordinates Molecular Biology teaching in Medicine. She is School representative on the Faculty of Science Standing and Education Committees, and the Faculty of Medicine Education Committee. Louise teaches across a range of courses from large (1000 students) to small senior courses (30 students) and to students in both the basic sciences and in professional degrees, in three different faculties. She has been the recipient of nine teaching awards, including a National Teaching Excellence Award in 2014, and she conducts research on the use of blended learning and online resources in teaching. During her tenure at UNSW, she was invited to participate in the development of academic programs for a new university in the California State System.

Technology is changing our world – how we live, learn and communicate. In 2018, UNSW will admit the first students to university who have never known a world without computers, who were only one year olds when Wikipedia began, four when Facebook was launched and seven when the first iPhone was released. How has this impacted the way they think and learn?
In this lecture, Professor Lutze-Mann explored how we utilise technology to enhance the acquisition of the scientia (knowledge) of science amongst our students and the general community in a world where it is increasingly important to be able to distinguish the false from the factual.
