STEM education to prepare students for the future

About

Innovation. Experience. Passion.

History

Louise Lexis and Brianna Julien met while working at La Trobe University. In 2009, Louise and Brianna were invited to undertake coordination and re-development of a third-year advanced human physiology program. Louise’s standing as an accomplished scientist (Master of Science in Exercise and Sport Science at the University of Florida, PhD in physiology at the University of Queensland) with extensive science teaching experience made her the ideal teammate for Brianna, who had recently completed her scientific research training (PhD in physiology at La Trobe University) while building a significant teaching profile. Their shared passion for physiology and learning and teaching was the foundation of a successful team.

Brianna Julien

Dr Brianna Julien is a Lecturer in human physiology in the School of Life Sciences at La Trobe University. While completing her PhD on factors influencing postural reflex activity, Brianna developed passions for science, and teaching and learning. Since beginning her first academic position at La Trobe University, Brianna has expanded her list of passions to include curriculum development, and has channeled this enthusiasm into the development of an award-winning (Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching), 60-credit point advanced human physiology capstone program for final-year Bachelor of Health Science students at La Trobe University with colleague Louise Lexis. Brianna is dedicated to meeting the challenges facing all science educators in preparing students for a fast moving and uncertain future, and is committed to developing innovative and engaging learning experiences that will stimulate a love of science
and lifelong learning in the next generation of scientists.
