Caroline Legoe-Man is one of our most experienced tutors with her academic background in both media studies and social sciences. One of her students is Kylie Watkins, who has commenced her second year in a Bachelor of Media Arts. From the beginning Kylie was apprehensive about the course and her abilities.
“Having Caroline to help, especially with understanding the technical aspects, has made a huge difference to my studies.”
For Caroline, “It has been really fulfilling for me to see how students have embraced the ATP and have made huge advances in all aspects of their study – in both character traits that make a good student, and their study outcomes”.
