Dr Cliff Mallett is an outstanding teacher and educational leader, whose approach to teaching and learning has evolved through his experience as a teacher, academic, psychologist and coach in a variety of settings.
Cliff’s teaching philosophy is summarised as “the pursuit of active engagement of students in meaningful dialogue that connects ideas, concepts and information with their personal and professional world and subsequently stimulates autonomous life-long learning and personal development”.
An extension of his success as a teacher is his well deserved reputation as a leading international coach and coach educator. He has served as a national team coach at major championships including the Olympics, World Championships and Commonwealth Games.
Cliff’s crowning achievement since joining The University of Queensland has been the initiation, development and implementation, in conjunction with the Australian Sports Commission, of an innovative and highly successful suite of online postgraduate programs in sports coaching. The quality and potential of the courses has been recognised internationally with several overseas universities and sports organisations keen to form partnerships with the program.
The programs have attracted a significant number of postgraduate students in a relatively short time, which together with a flourishing research higher degree cohort, form the platform for a leading national and international sport coaching research initiative. Cliff is a dedicated, innovative and popular teacher who has made a significant contribution to his field within the University, the wider community and internationally.
