VICE-CHANCELLOR’S AWARD FOR TEACHING EXCELLENCE
Dr Stacey Ward is a cat mother, lover of Star Trek, and Lecturer in Biological Anthropology. She joined the ANU in November 2020, where she teaches courses in human skeletal analysis. Stacey draws on her deep understanding of the skills and scholarship of her field, accrued through years of study and fieldwork, to provide her students with an authentic and engaging education in this discipline.
“I loved the challenge of explaining difficult concepts as simply
as I could, and that light bulb moment when the student finally
gets it and it's just so cool.”
“Education is an amazing gift. I think it opens minds,
helps us be more human; it increases our tolerance.
It's all the things we need in today's world.”
