The Pro Vice-Chancellor Learning & Teaching devises and delivers initiatives to produce a distinctively ANU approach to learning and teaching that is future-focused, active, engaged and generates an outstanding student learning experience.
The PVC works collaboratively with College Deans, Associate Deans (Education), ANUSA, University and College student services, Information Technology Services, and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), and oversees the operations of the Centre for Learning & Teaching and ANU Careers & Employability.
Associate Professor Geoff Hinchcliffe holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the Australian National University and a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Canberra. Geoff joined the University in 2016 to establish the innovative Bachelor of Design and lead a program of curriculum renewal within the School of Art & Design which earned a 2018 Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Service Innovation. Prior to taking on the Interim Pro Vice-Chancellor (Learning & Teaching) position, Geoff served as the Associate Dean Education in the College of Arts & Social Sciences, where he championed a wide range of initiatives to invigorate the curriculum and build sustainable, progressive programs of study.
Geoff’s practice-based research focuses on enlivening data and digital collections through visualisation, interface and interaction design. His research results in both theoretical and creative outputs, from the highly practical, to the experimental, playful and occasionally provocative.
