AUT HONOURS BATCH OF INNOVATIVE TEACHERS

By Yvonne Brill

AUCKLAND (PMC Online/Pacific Media Watch): Pacific Media Centre director Associate Professor David Robie is one of a group of AUT University academics who were awarded a Vice-Chancellor's award for excellence last night.

Recipients were nominated by students and colleagues for the VC's Award for Excellence in Teaching for their outstanding contribution and innovative style.

"Being nominated came out of the blue. I feel both honoured and humbled to achieve this at AUT which has so many innovative and gifted teachers on its staff," said Dr Robie.

"The efforts of my support crew and students in this award are hugely appreciated."

Director of teaching and learning at AUT University Dr Stanley Frielick described the purpose of the awards as to "ensure we recognise and reward excellent teaching".

Of the 7 academics honoured last night, 4 were awarded the VC's Award for Excellence in Teaching - including Dr Robie, while 3 were Highly Commended and one received Special Recognition.

Dr Robie, a specialist in Asia-Pacific journalism who has worked for 20 years in the media and almost two decades as a journalism educator, was recognised for his work within the School of Communication Studies in developing student and media publications such as Te Waha Nui, PMC Online and Pacific Scoop and his contribution to diversity.

He described his teaching method as based on experiential and problem-based learning, "reality" publication, broadcast and online conditions while  "deploying critical thinking and a continuous drive for excellence".

Among students' comments were: "His passion for diversity journalism inspired me as a Pasifika student .. . and I thank him for establishing the PMC as a great learning environment."

The other recipients of the VC's Award for Excellence in Teaching were Rouxelle De Villiers from the Faculty of Business and Law, Lexie Matheson from the Faculty of Applied Humanities, and Dr Roy Nates from the Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies.
