Overview


Associate Professor Ann Rogerson is the Associate Dean (Education) in the Faculty of Business. Ann is a passionate educator, keen to engage students in the developing lifelong learning skills while connecting their learning experiences to theory and real world contexts and their future workplaces. She continually assesses and seeks to improve her own teaching and learning skills through feedback, reflection, study and research, sharing her discoveries with colleagues, and drawing on her industry experience.

Ann’s commitment to business education extends beyond her discipline area of organisational behaviour and interpersonal communication to the increasingly prominent area of promoting academic integrity. She actively advocates and shares how assessment design can limit academic misconduct and facilitates the easier detection of contract cheating situations which has led to local, national and international recognition. She now Chair's UOW's Academic Integrity Advisory Group.

Research Overview


  • Ann's research follows two distinct streams which are linked at an intersection of interpersonal communication.

    The first stream relates to her business discipline area of leadership and organisational behaviour, an interest stimulated by her previous leadership roles held in industry.  Patterns of behaviour and communication are investigated in workplace and/or organisation settings to provide insight and opportunities for growth, personal and professional development using reflective practice.

    The second stream relates to academic integrity where observations and interactions have led to a body of research achieving local, national and international attention.  An examination of student behaviours revealed by the analysis of text, interpretation of technology based reports and analysis of feedback have revealed some underlying patterns.  This body of work is now informing educators and institutions about what contract cheating behaviours look like, and practices such as effective assessment design that can assist in mitigating the practices.

Impact Story


  • There has been a significant development and broader understanding of some of the free methods that students use to cheat. This work was picked up by highly regarded publications such as Times Higher Education and other media outlets both domestically and internationally. It led to extensive discussions across all levels of education and a reexamination of scientific outputs by agencies including NASA. The impact is ongoing and has led to change in practices through the training of education professionals in detecting cheating and assessment design.

Teaching Overview


  • Dr Ann Rogerson aims to inspire students to embrace any opportunity to learn while providing support and strategies to facilitate their acquisition of knowledge and skills and translate these aspects into life-long learning practices.  She began teaching post-graduate students in 2008, and embeds life-long learning skills linking leadership and communication theory and practice.

    She remains aware that her students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences from schools, previous tertiary or workplace experiences inside and outside of Australia. 

    Drawing on her own learning experiences as a post-graduate student, and previous industry experience, she integrates good scholarly practices with educational skills about how to study and write while creating links between theory and real world situations.  This includes openly discussing the importance of integrity from a personal standpoint, and from an academic perspective in relation to how students approach their studies.  She continually examines new ways and different methods to make assessments engaging and rigorous, while embedding sound academic skills. 

    Ann is a recognised subject matter expert in the use of Turnitin as a pedagogical tool to develop students' writing and provide effective feedback.  Winning the Turnitin Australia/NZ Innovators Award in 2016, and coming runner-up in the Worldwide Turnitin Innovators Award the same year, she conducts sessions and seminars on the effective use of the online tool.  Her 2017 webinar attracted over 1600 participants from 30 countries.

    Ann is now called on share her experiences and expertise with colleagues, other faculties and educational institutions to disseminate her practice and research in the areas of academic integrity, detection and management of contract cheating, assessment design and good teaching practice.
