Each month we will profile a member of CILT staff, giving a glimpse into what makes them tick. This month we profile Rachele Draper, Course Quality and Development Officer in the Educational Quality Team.
What do you like the most about working at Flinders?
“There’s so many things to like, so I couldn’t just name one.
I have had the great fortune of working with some exceptional and inspiring people over the years, and have developed some great working relationships across the University. I’d say, first and foremost, it’s the people really who make it a great place to work.
Then of course, there is the beautiful campus, tucked away from the hectic hubbub of the CBD with an incredibly rich biodiversity of native plants, wildlife and some of the most incredible views and sunsets I’ve had the privilege of enjoying.”
What’s one thing that can instantly make your day better?
“Seeing a curriculum proposal I’ve been working on get approved!
I also can’t walk past a good coffee – coffee makes everything in life better.”
What is something you are looking forward to in 2021?
“I am loving the return of the vibrancy that having students and staff back on campus brings, and I hope to see this continue into 2021.
For me personally, I am looking forward to welcoming a new member into my family as I embark on a period of parental leave from the end of April. It is bittersweet though as this will be the end of my secondment in Educational Quality and I will be sad to leave the team. We have such a great team of motivated and knowledgeable people here in EQ / CILT, and in the College I support (EPSW). I have really enjoyed my time since joining the team in 2019, and I have learned so much – it’s been a great opportunity.”
All the best for 2021 Rachele!
