What I can offer as a Mentor

Professor Natalie Skead transforms students through innovative and reflective teaching that focuses on interaction, engagement and skills development. Professor Skead inspires graduates to be highly skilled and knowledgeable, to demonstrate ethical and professional conduct and be committed to justice. Learning through problem-solving is an important feature of Professor Skead’s teaching, in both small and large groups. These classes synthesise and contextualise students’ understanding, build students’ higher order thinking and analysis, and involve them in actively constructing and optimising their own learning. In solving problems, students grapple with newly learned legal concepts, principles, issues and facts which allow them to learn with and from each other. Students are encouraged to explore their ideas, express different opinions and critically analyse and critique cases, commentary, and the views of teachers and their peers, as well as their own views.
