The Cathedral College
Rockhampton teacher Cameron Wust’s work to improve the teaching and learning dialogue at The Cathedral College have landed him in the running to win a prestigious state award.
The Year 9 core teacher who is a valued part of the college’s Science and Mathematics departments has been nominated for the Queensland College of Teachers Excellence in Teaching Award.
Cameron takes great pride in maintaining an open classroom policy for all members of the school community.
The use of ICT is greatly encouraged in Cameron’s classroom; he has been a leader within the college for using graphic organisers, digital simulations and technology-based learning programs such as Socrative’s open questions to develop and test hypotheses, Quizlet Live – cooperative learning, Kahoot – inconsequential competition and Wikis for 24/7 access to resources.
He also shares his wealth of knowledge and experience with preservice teachers at Central Queensland University, in his role as casual lecturer.
Cameron’s colleague Rachele Belz describes him as an innovative teacher who embraces change and is committed to continual self-improvement.
“Cameron has been an outstanding support to new teachers in his subject area by sharing a plethora of digital resources that are classroom ready,” Rachele says.
“He always aspires to be great and expects the same from his students.”
Congratulations Cameron on your nomination.
