For three Saturdays commencing on 31 August 2013, Professor Marko Pavlyshyn was a guest teacher at the Lesia Ukrainka Ukrainian Community School in Noble Park.
Invited by Ms Orysia Stefyn, principal of the School and an alumna of Monash Ukrainian Studies (she was a member of the very first cohort of students when the program opened in 1983), Professor Pavlyshyn taught the Year 11 and Year 12 class, working with them on the theme of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution of 2004.
The students, two of whom attend the John Monash Science School on the Clayton Campus of Monash University, visited the Matheson Library to conduct part of their research on the Orange Revolution in the Library’s extensive Ukrainian Studies collection.
Among the topics discussed in class were opportunities for the study of Ukrainian at Monash
Students learned that, regardless of the university and Faculty in which they enrolled on completing the Victorian Certificate of Education, they would in almost all cases be able to credit the study of Ukrainian at Monash University to their main degree.
