The Scientia Academy Lecture Series 2018 begins with an intriguing talk by Professor Alex Steel, UNSW Law.

‘All achievement involves effort. Learning and teaching is no exception. In this talk we will explore the dangers of not recognising the degree of effort that students and teachers need to be great learners and great educators, and we’ll consider ways in which we can encourage positive engagement with harder learning and teaching’.
