Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education)
La Trobe University
Melbourne, Australia

This is an exciting time to be at La Trobe. The University continues to transform with a significant capital investment program as part of our pursuit and bold vision to be a great university of a different kind – a university equipped to take full advantage of the opportunities of the 21st century. Our University is committed to four strategic core objectives of an outstanding student experience, student employability, research excellence and being an unrivalled partner of choice, and has a focus on a safe, inclusive and high-performance culture of which our people are proud members of staff.

Like all Universities, we are constantly reviewing the way we do things. Our environment is changing rapidly – competition for students locally and internationally is increasing, while the possibilities offered by new technologies and ways of learning are expanding constantly. Our funding is increasingly linked to government performance measures.

These factors have led to the creation of this new role.

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) (DVCE) will oversee the overhaul and transformation of the University’s educational offerings to ensure that the content, structure and delivery modes are fit for purpose for a University in the 21st century.

Reporting to the Vice-Chancellor, and as a member of Senior Executive Group, the DVCE will lead this transformation and will ensure that the University is well positioned to take advantage of digital technologies in its teaching and learning.

The DVCE will be the University’s Chief Academic Officer, with responsibility for quality improvement and quality assurance of teaching and learning; for liaison with the Academic Board, and oversight of TEQSA re-accreditation and related matters.
