General Responsibilities

Biography

Dr Sara Booth has a background in learning and teaching, originally based in the Faculty of Education, at the University of Tasmania (UTAS). She began her university teaching career in 2004 and was awarded a Faculty Mentoring Award (2005), an Early Career Researcher Award (2007), and a UTAS Teaching Excellence Award (2007). In 2008, she obtained a UTAS Teaching and Learning Fellowship, which investigated the leadership role and responsibilities of course coordinators at UTAS. From 2008-2009, she was course coordinator of the Bachelor of Teaching Program and the University Preparation Program (UPP), which involved establishing UPP on three campuses. From 2009-2011 she led and coordinated three institutional-wide benchmarking projects for UTAS which included formal benchmarking partnerships with the universities of Wollongong (UOW) and Deakin. In 2011-2012, she facilitated the involvement of UTAS in two Australian academic standards projects (Teaching Standards Project and the ALTC Inter-university Moderation Project). She also led the testing and coordination of an institutional wide project on UTAS Academic Standards during 2012.

In 2012, the Student Evaluation, Review and Reporting Unit (SERRU) was established to provide institutional and strategic support to the University on data priorities, needs and projects. Sara's expertise is in project management, standards and benchmarking at the institutional level and her role within SERRU encompasses establishing strategic relationships with a range of stakeholders (internally, nationally and internationally) to build strategic, research partnerships for the University. She provides policy advice and support to the Senior Executive and University committees on a range of institutional strategic priorities such as learning and teaching performance, promotions, academic standards, quality, benchmarking and the reporting of institutional data.

The objectives are: I) to develop and implement a benchmarking framework and resources for comparing promotions policies and processes; 2) to collect data on how promotions policies and processes have been implemented in four universities; 3) to triangulate data on outcomes of promotions in the four universities in the last two years; 4) to effectively disseminate the outcomes nationally and internationally.
