Dr Jennifer Heath, Director of Strategy, Planning and Performance @ Murdoch University

Dr Jennifer Heath, worked in multiple positions during her time at the University of Wollongong but none more important than her role as Director of Student Support and Education Analytics. She was instrumental at instituting Learning Analytics across the campus, and was well known especially in New South Wales universities for her leading stance on ethical guidelines for the acceptable use of learning platforms.
Jennifer will be taking up a senior role at Murdoch University as the Director of Strategy, Planning and Performance in March 2017. She will be sorely missed as an integral community member of the Kiama region as well. Thank you Jenn for being such an incredible support to me at UOW- especially during the birth of number 3- that blue baby wrap kept J so cuddly and warm.
