Students first

Our teachers create a tailored learning experience through high impact, active classes, accessible digital resources, and flexible feedback and study options


Carl Sherwood
School of Economics

Carl Sherwood combines 15 years of professional engineering experience with 14 years of teaching at UQ. He creates a stimulating and meaningful learning experience by using a contextualized, interactive storytelling approach to help first-year economics students overcome their fear of learning statistics. 

Carl really tries to link what might ordinarily be bland concepts to things that students are doing outside university.

For many students, work integrated learning is essential. Dr Anne Hill has over 10 years of experience creating simulated clinical learning environments so her students are able to help their clients reach their goals while delivering positive change in their local communities.

The best lecturers should be approachable, professional, knowledgeable, and passionate about their students' learning. Anne holds all of those qualities.
