    Transforming your knowledge
    Our teachers write the books that are
    used for teaching. They produce research
    papers every year, they contribute to
    international conversations in their fields
    and their work appears in the media
    and influences government policy. This
    knowledge is brought into the classroom so
    you can address the latest issues, ideas and
    challenges with their support.

     East Timor and Cambodia, and in Australia
     with the Royal Flying Doctor Service. He
     was the valedictorian of his class and
