Dr Kirsten McLean has been awarded a 2015 Faculty of Arts Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning.

Her citation was titled: For outstanding contributions to the inclusive teaching of sexuality from a sociological perspective through a safe and positive learning environment for all students.

This recognition by the Faculty rewards Kirsten’s many years of teaching of the sociology of sexuality in the unit ATS3715, and her commitment to an inclusive teaching environment that engages, inspires and motivates students to learn. The award complements Kirsten’s work with the LGBTI and diverse sexuality and gender communities. She has an international reputation as a key researcher of bisexuality, and within the Monash community is a member of the Monash Ally Network and the newly-established university Diverse Sexualities and Genders Advisory Group.

The award comes with a Faculty grant, which Kirsten plans to use to further develop ATS3715.
