Southern Cross University is committed to providing educational opportunities for our diverse student body, in particular those from rural and regional communities. We aim to deliver inspirational teaching, innovative research and high quality and dynamic learning experiences to equip our students to be tomorrow's leaders, to live a life they value and be effective global citizens.

We work side by side with academic staff and students to implement the University's strategic directions through three teams of staff:

Academic Skills – Support for students, Academic Practice – Support for staff and Digital Resources – Support for staff

Academic Practice

The Academic Practice team supports strategies that focus on design for student learning and assessment, teaching evaluation and the scholarship of teaching in diverse learning spaces at Southern Cross University.
