Sandie Elsom teaches across a range of courses in the Preparatory and Enabling Unit. Her Masters research focused on the experiences of Tertiary Preparation Pathway students at a regional learning hub. She believes that an understanding of the students’ needs can inform the design of courses, programs and support services.
Sandie was a member of the MyTED project team. This HEPP funded project aimed to awaken the aspirations of primary school children to consider higher education. She also worked as a project officer on the Multidisciplinary Entrepreneurial Experience Model, an innovative program which brought together students from Design, Business and Journalism to prepare for and participate in a Startup Weekend. In the second half of 2014, she was a guest lecturer at the RheinAhr campus of the University of Applied Sciences Koblenz in Germany.
Sandie’s current research investigates the use of alternate reality games to engage students in higher education.
