South Australian, Dr Voula Gaganis, recognised for her significant contribution to education


Dr Voula Gaganis from Flinders University in Adelaide has been recognised for her significant contribution to the quality of student learning in Universities Australia’s annual Australian Awards for University Teaching (AAUT)

Dr Gaganis, who is a Senior Lecturer in Physiology at the College of Medicine and Public Health, was the recipient of the Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning.

On the University’s website, Dr Gaganis says one of her passions in teaching is “active learning, particularly using innovative teaching techniques.”

“I have also introduced a cloud-based learning technology into Medical Science Physiology topics which I am very excited about!” she adds.

Dr Gaganis is also involved in the Emerging Leaders Showcase (ELS) as an organising committee member since 2018 and invited Chair in 2021. 

The AAUT were established in 1997 by the Australian Government to celebrate and reward excellence in university teaching, and recognise the impact that educators have on the learning and teaching experiences and outcomes of university students.c
