Keep Dr Leigh Ellen Potter!

Dr Potter is an excellent lecturer and early career researcher. She is an asset to Griffith University. She has won teaching awards. She is the project lead for Seek and Sign, a research project focused on creating technologies to help young Deaf children learn Auslan (Australian Sign Language). She has a grant application under consideration. She is the course convenor for 7 courses each year. She currently has 1 PHD student, 2 Honours student and at least 3 prospective PHD students and 3 prospective Honours students seeking her out for next year. She is currently teaching 185 second-year students 70 third-year students, And yet, her contract is coming to an end before the end of Semester 2, 2013. She has no news on whether or not her contract will be renewed. Her students will not be able to receive finalised marks, and third year students will not be able to graduate, if Dr Potter's contract is not renewed. Her Research students will lose their key point of contact, if Dr Potter's contract is not renewed. We, the undersigned, demand that Griffith University do all that it can to ensure they do not lose this extraordinary woman.

    2 years ago Comments: Dr Potter has provided me with first class assistance and guidance at any point that I needed it. I am totally in awe of her ability to provide responsive ad-hoc one-on-one assistance given the workload she has. It inspired me to develop a deeper understanding of the course content (Project Management) and to make a start at applying these principles to my own life. It is obvious that Ellen Potter applies what she teaches with amazing results, both for the university and for us....the students. Bar far one of the better lecturers Griffith University School of Information technology has known since Geoff Droomey joined in the eighties.
