DETAILS: Associate Professor Gabrielle Todd is an academic and researcher in the School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences. She leads a research team that is investigating how the human brain controls movement and she teaches undergraduate and postgraduate neuroscience and physiology. Her approach to teaching involves sharing her passion for these topics in a manner that appeals to students’ natural curiosity about how the brain and body works. Her approaches reduce the fear and intimidation that students feel towards these challenging topics and improve student engagement with the content through interactive activities that involve members of the community. Her strategies provide students with a supportive learning environment that motivates students to learn, and a formative learning process for students to gain confidence in their knowledge about the topic. Her award-winning approach has enhanced the student learning experience in, and satisfaction with, these large content-heavy courses.

Associate Professor Gabrielle Todd received a citation in the 2018 AAUT (Australian Awards for University Teaching) for sustained excellence in formative assessment of learning that demystifies neuroscience for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
