Dr Julie Diane McIntosh
I am the Chair of Teaching and Learning in the School of Biological Sciences and a PTF who is passionate about creating learning environments that excite students about scientific discovery and the process of science. For me, science truely comes alive through application of knowledge in meaningful practical or applied settings and so I strive to create learning environments that enable students to actively learn and discover.
In my practice, I value connectivity, and as part of my role, I strive to build our community of teaching staff, to create an environment of support and collegiality across all our courses and our school.
