Congratulations to Dr Enes Makalic, Senior Research Fellow in the Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics on being awarded one of three inaugural MDHS Dean’s Fellowships of $10,000 for Learning and Teaching.   Enes is the coordinator of the subject Biostatistics, a core subject in the Master of Public Health.  

The Fellowships develop and celebrate excellence in learning and teaching practice and innovation. The Fellowships will provide enhanced professional development opportunities for teaching staff through funding short national or international visits that foster significant and lasting connections with internationally recognised leaders in learning and teaching.

Enes will use the Fellowship to visit Professor Joohon Sung at the Graduate School of Public Health, Seoul National University, Korea and work with him to develop a new elective subject focused on applied machine learning in public health.

The outcomes generated by the Fellowships will enrich the Faculty’s practice, culture and scholarship in innovative learning and teaching, and will showcase the Faculty as a global leader in learning and teaching excellence.
