Jillian Clare is passionate about communication in all its forms, but particularly how personal and professional communication works in the public domain. She is currently the coordinator of the Doctor of Creative Industries program which is a specially designed research professional doctorate for creative industries practitioners.
From 2002 to 2006, Jillian was Course Coordinator of the Bachelor of Creative Industries (Media and Communication) and the double degrees with Business and Law. Her PhD, completed in 2003, researched women leaders and women's leadership, parts of which were conducted at the University of Cambridge (UK) where Jillian was a Visiting Scholar (Wolfson). The research looked at how women are working as leaders within male-defined and male-dominated professions. Her thesis was subsequently nominated for an Australian Research in Education Award.
More recent research includes a creative project to commemorate the centenary of the vote for women in Queensland which resulted in almost 100 shoeboxes of primary materials that will be housed for posterity in the State Library of Queensland. Jillian's teaching interests include interdisciplinary initiatives across the university. She has taught into many faculties including Business, FIT, Law, Built Environment, Health and to postgraduate students through the Office of Research.
In 2006 she was a member of a cross-faculty team that was awarded a Vice-Chancellor's Award for Teaching Excellence, and in 2007 she was awarded an Australian Learning and Teaching Award for Teaching Excellence (formerly the Carrick Award for Teaching Excellence).
