Teach &
shape minds

A legacy is the value of what you leave behind, and instilling curiosity and a thirst for knowledge in others is a legacy to be proud of. At UOW we can teach you the skills to help people understand new concepts and ideas, as well as foster in them a desire to ask questions and seek answers themselves. Read on to see how you can learn to teach and shape minds.
