She has led educational projects on inclusive pedagogies and assessment, resulting in higher levels of participation, engagement and completion. Her strategic leadership of academic development has had major impact on pedagogy and educational changes at institutional level, enhancing the learning experience of staff and students.
Leti has worked closely with Monash Education Academy to establish a close partnership and has contributed to the development of professional recognition schemes for teaching in higher education at Monash University.
