Associate Professor Lydia Kavanagh is a chemical engineer who has worked in many teams over the course of her career. These teams have ranged from large wastewater treatment plants (an industry team) to project-centred curricula for accredited engineering undergraduate degrees (an institutional team) to workshops disseminating global initiatives in the field of eLearning (a research team).
Lydia was a principal engineer for a large environmental consultancy before returning to teach the next generation of engineers. In her current role of Director of First Year Engineering at The University of Queensland, Lydia works with a cohort of over 1100 students and is involved in the development of their teamwork skills by supporting them as they work in multi-disciplinary teams to design, build and demonstrate solutions to real world problems. This experience, plus Lydia's own working knowledge of teams, has given her a unique insight into what helps students work well in teams,​ and she has captured this knowledge in this MOOC.
