FUND­ING NEEDED TO TEACH RE­MOTELY

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS -

Hav­ing come from the dis­ci­pline of medicine, where it’s im­pos­si­ble to cram a whole class of stu­dents around a body to ob­serve an op­er­a­tion, Prof Stephen Winn knows about find­ing in­no­va­tive ways to teach.

USQ has fed­eral fund­ing to place video con­fer­enc­ing equip­ment at 13 schools.

Prof Winn be­lieves the next state gov­ern­ment should con­sider a roll­out pro­gram over four years, say­ing: “We can’t let ge­o­graph­i­cal dis­tances stop us from pro­vid­ing these com­mu­ni­ties with learn­ing and teach­ing sup­port.”
