VICE-CHANCELLOR’S AWARD FOR TEACHING EXCELLENCE
RECIPIENT

Associate Professor Dale Roberts is a mathematician specialising in probability theory. His deliberate style has evolved to ‘humanise’ his teaching by blending old-school mediums (live “chalk and talk” blackboard lectures and hand-written notes instead of slide decks) with modern technologies. This approach allows Dale to make his interactions more bidirectional, his teaching more personal, and his lecturing more dynamic.

“I like to swing between the pure end of the spectrum and the applied end of the spectrum, and show how enthusiastic I am about all this material and how interesting and colourful it is.”

“The material that I teach is often extremely technical mathematics. For me the big challenge is, how do you take this material and turn it into something that is understandable and that maybe students can relate to or can actually see, I guess, how the mechanics work?”
Associate Professor Dale Roberts
