Professor Paul Munroe has been active in learning and teaching in higher education for over 25 years. He has taught a wide range of courses in the School of Materials Science and Engineering across all levels.
Prof. Munroe has been awarded the Vice-Chancellor's Award for Teaching Excellence and a Carrick Citation (now called Australian Award for Teaching Excellence) for Excellence in Learning and Teaching.
He has also published a number of research publications in pedagogical research, principally surrounding the use of on line teaching resources. Prof. Munroe was a CI on a "Australian Learning and Teaching Council" grant to develop online modules to teach microscopy. These modules are now used across the Australian university sector for this purpose.
Prof. Munroe has served as a Head of School (HoS) in Materials Science and Engineering, and successfully mentored many academics new to teaching, including several subsequent winners of the Vice-Chancellor's Award for Teaching Excellence. As HoS, he has also been involved in program and curriculum development and the introduction of several new courses and programs to the university. Prof. Munroe also currently acts as a 'peer reviewer of teaching'.
