Dr Lynne Leveson
Senior lecturer at the La Trobe Business School
New Business Course
Dr Lynne Leveson has twenty years’ experience in teaching and research, yet continues to refine and develop her skills through her research, reflection and responding to feedback from colleagues, peers and students alike. She encourages her students to take a similar stance, asking them to examine the links between their university studies and their day-to-day experiences on a regular basis.
Lynne teaches subjects in management to all year levels across multiple campuses, something which brings her into contact with a diverse range of students. Her reflective approach means that she consistently receives above-average evaluations for her teaching, with students describing her classes as interactive, enjoyable, and connected to real situations.
Students also report positively on Lynne’s ability to communicate, maintain their interest, and make subjects relevant. Her Interpersonal Skills and Conflict subject is very popular as a third year elective among students not only in the Business School but across the university. Students have described this subject as highly engaging and particularly helpful in resolving issues in their working and academic lives.
In 2009, Lynne received a Dean’s Teaching Award, and this was followed in 2011 by an Australian Learning and Teaching Council citation for her sustained contribution to scholarly activities that have influenced and enhanced learning and teaching in undergraduate and postgraduate Business education.
Lynne is currently overseeing the introduction of a new La Trobe degree – the Bachelor of Business (Leadership and Management), which will cater to the high but largely unmet demand for leadership studies in the Victorian higher education sector.
