Being an academic:
What am I doing this for again?
Professor James Arvanitakis has been awarded the Australian Prime Minister’s Australian University Teacher of the Year. He gained this prestigious recognition, through an impressive track record of implementing innovative and alternative teaching methods. His tutorials integrate open phone lines allowing students to text-in questions as well as flash mob dances to explain chaos theory.
