Teaching

Andrea has been teaching in the School of Social Sciences as a sessional teaching associate and unit coordinator since 2011, and as an assistant lecturer since 2015. She has taught in a variety of sociology units, but specialises in topics around gender, sex and sexuality, critical men’s studies, sex and gender in the media, and GLBTIQ issues. 

Andrea was the coordinator and chief examiner for ATS2561 Sex and the Media in semester 1, and ATS2727 Men, Masculinity & Society for semester 2 in 2015. She will be moving on from teaching at the end of the year to pursue a research position in ARCSHS at La Trobe University. 

Teaching strengths/approach:

  • Facilitation of an engaging atmosphere through the use of multi-media materials and contemporary topics;
  • Development of teaching materials that utilise real-world examples to help cement theoretical frameworks;
  • Integration of discussions of broader socio-political issues and practical skill building for work in a variety of research and community out-reach roles.
