A lesson in appreciation
The 2020 school year began tentatively, with a menacing pandemic in the shadows. It comes to an end, however, on a note of triumph, with a new appreciation for the teachers who united to take on the unprecedented challenge of implementing mass remote-learning during the shutdown. We spoke to the principals of two very different schools on their success strategy.
The year at UOW
The year 2020 at UOW was one of challenges, change, and optimism in the face of crises. The university sector was thrown one of its biggest problems to solve yet, overhauling the delivery of all teaching, learning and working, as the world was forced to adapt to a rapidly evolving way of life.
Connecting our global community
Throughout 2020 we were fortunate to be able to connect, collaborate and engage with our global community of more than 160,000 UOW alumni.
Preparing for change
That the future is the product of the decisions we make today is a sentiment swirling around the corridors of Australia’s education sector.
Welcome to UOW Outlook Magazine 2020/2021
A year like no other, 2020 has brought with it major disruption and dislocation, but also stories of communities uniting and connecting against the odds. Our alumni community’s experiences are vast and differing, and yet you remain connected by a shared educational experience, your stories as alumni are intertwined with that of your University.
We're all in this together
There’s no denying the enormous impact that COVID-19 has had on our university students. From adjusting to online learning and becoming experts in Zoom calls, to dealing with the financial struggle following job losses.
