School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences

Dr Carlie Driscoll teaches audiology students and was the first to suggest using competency standards for the training of audiologists in Australia. She developed the core knowledge and skills document that was subsequently endorsed by the Audiological Society of Australia for use in the accreditation of national audiology programs in Australia. Dr Driscoll has made a significant contribution to developing the new curriculum for the Master of Audiology Studies, implemented in 2009, and completely revamped the 2 rehabilitative audiology courses, emphasising the practical and clinical aspects. Her students like her teaching because her classes are well-organised, interesting and respectful of students, with an emphasis on thinking and learning skills. She has been instrumental in mentoring and supervising research higher degree students and her graduates have very high employment rates.
