Professor Crookes joined the University of Canberra as a Professor in June 2018 with a particular commitment to work with and facilitate others to develop their academic careers, via what he terms ‘academic performance coaching’. In doing so, he hopes to raise the scale and profile of research and scholarship at the University, as well as broaden conceptions of ‘valuable academic work’ across Higher Education globally.  In part, this will be achieved by influencing current conceptions of Impact in relation to the contributions of academia to society. He will expand upon the theoretical underpinnings and some practical applications of these ideas, in this EViSS Lecture.  

Patrick has a significant track record of leadership in Higher Education broadly and in Nursing/Health in particular. He became a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2015, one of around 150 such Fellows globally, at the time. In 2018, he was identified as one of the top 10 education-focused nursing academics in Australia in an evidence-based article in the Journal of Advanced Nursing.  He was awarded a Carrick Citation for significant contribution to student learning in 2007. Patrick was Chair of the Council of Deans of Nursing and Midwifery (ANZ) between 2009 and 2013.  He holds Honorary Professorial appointments at the universities of Stavanger (Norway), Huddersfield (UK) and Wollongong (Australia).  He is an Associate Editor of the highly credible international journal Nurse Education in Practice.
