The adaptive learning project has a core team of three members (who you will learn about more in this post), but we are part of a bigger team tapping into the knowledge and experience of colleagues within the UWA Business School as well as being supported by the team in the Centre of Education Futures.
Leo Langa is an Assistant Professor in Accounting at the UWA Business School. Leo has vast experience in teaching accounting at higher education institutions, which means he is perfectly suited not only to assist in developing the content which forms the backbone to the adaptive learning tool, but also to act as a highly skilled reviewer and quality assurer of the material we develop. When Leo is not developing accounting material, he enjoys travelling and reading and he is an avid follower of different sports, always updated with the latest footy, rugby and cricket scores.

Peter Robinson has taught the breadth of the accounting curriculum at undergraduate and post graduate level at all Western Australian universities, as well as other national and international universities. Peter is committed to improving the quality of the student experience and often goes beyond the call of duty to ensure a better learning experience. Peter brings with him a wealth of knowledge on accounting education and takes the lead in storyboarding the content for this project. When not thinking up ways to improve student experience, Peter enjoys the good things in life…good sport, good movies, good music, good food, good company.
Nikki Schonfeldt is a lecturer in Accounting at the UWA Business School. Nikki is the project leader on this project and is responsible for updating the blog, as well as other reporting matters. Nikki has a diverse interest in tertiary education, ranging from lecturing and development of new teaching material to launching new teaching initiatives using different technology platforms. When she’s not refining and engaging in her fully online unit, she manages her blessings – this involves early morning runs with the dog, early morning devotions, a lot of afternoon driving (3 sporty kids) and a lot of cooking (3 sporty kids + husband).
