Associate Professor Angus Morrison-Saunders
PhD

Associate Professor in Environmental Assessment

About me

I am Associate Professor in Environmental Assessment at Murdoch University, Australia (75%); Extraordinary Professor in Environmental Sciences and Management at North West University, South Africa; and Senior Associate of the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (including role of Tutor in Master of Studies in Sustainability Leadership). I am an Associate Editor of Environmental Impact Assessment Review journal (commenced January 2015). Prior to this I served as Co-Editor of Impact Assessment and Project Appraisal journal for six years.

My research focuses on the effectiveness of environmental impact assessment (EIA) and its derivatives such as strategic environmental assessment and sustainability assessment. I am especially interested in follow-up studies of EIA to determine its  contribution to sustainability. Other research interests include effective teaching in higher education (especially writing and research skills), sustainable tourism and environmental education.

I have published over 70 journal papers, around a dozen other peer-reviewed publications, edited three books, written 18 book chapters and given over 90 presentations at national and international conferences.

Teaching area

Units Taught
At Murdoch University, I currently teach the following units (i.e. as Unit Coordinator):
- ENV556 Principles of Environmental Impact Assessment (100%, 2000-present [formerly coded as ENV520])
- ENV557 Environmental Assessment and Management (50%, 2011-present [formerly coded as ENV522])
- ENV617 Sustainability Assessment (100%, from 2015)

Teaching Innovations
In 2006 I was awarded a $1,000 Vice Chancellor’s Excellence in Enhancing Learning Award and a $10,000 Carrick Institute Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning. Some of my teaching initiatives have been published (see Publications page). In 2006 and 2011 I recieved a Nomination for Vice-Chancellor’s Excellence in Teaching Awards, Murdoch University (Ranked in top 10% of teaching staff for those years in student teaching surveys).

Teaching Philosophy

Through a subject-centred learning approach, I seek to empower my students to be critical and independent learners. I encourage independent learning through having highly organised online unit resources. I use a variety of assessment methods throughout my units. I enjoy teaching and enjoy learning about environmental management issues and I seek to impart this enthusiasm to my undergraduate and research students alike.
Some videos of me speaking about my teaching philosophy undertaken for the: ‘Just in time; just for me’ Support for academics who coordinate a unit of study, (Collaboration between Murdoch University, Edith Cowan University and Australian Learning and Teaching Council, are available: http://learningleadersupport.com/video/
I appear in 11 video clips in total; some key ones being:
- Assessment: setting high standards and bringing the students with you
- Teaching approach: focus on the subject
- Improving unit quality: a never-ending experiment
- Leading units with large enrolments
- Teaching-research nexus: compartmentalizing to find a balance

Research areas

I am particularly interested in supervising research students as well as conducting my own research in the areas of sustainability assessment, EIA follow-up, environmental auditing, effectiveness of EIA, environmental policy and environmental management performance evaluation. I also have interests in the evaluation of eco-tourism and environmental education programmes.

Some broad ideas for potential research projects that may be of interest to prospective research students are outlined below.

1. Follow-up for sustainability of EIA projects
This project would undertake follow-up of development activities that have been subjected to EIA with the purpose of exploring the sustainability dimensions of actual outcomes (e.g. social and environmental performance, equity, trade-offs etc) and to understand how these came about.

2. Follow-up of environmental planning outcomes in Western Australia
Environmental planning procedures have been in operation in WA since 1996 and it is now timely to investigate their effectiveness in terms of environmental protection. In addition to their effectiveness, to what extent do the environmental planning procedures represent a strategic environmental assessment approach? This project would be particularly suitable for a PhD candidate.

3. Evolution of environmental policy through impact assessment
This project would examine the treatment of a particular environmental issue (eg. wetland management) by the Environmental Protection Authority in Western Australia from the 1970′s to the present. The aim of the project is to understand how EIA has influenced the development of policies and management practices for that particular issue over time.

4. Changes in projects between environmental decision-making and implementation
How representative are the accounts of projects in the report and recommendation documents prepared by the EPA compared to when the projects are implemented? Sometimes the Ministerial approval conditions are very different to the EPA recommendations. How often does this occur? Other projects change over time when proponents successfully bid to have approval conditions changed. This project will examine the extent to which projects differ from EPA recommendations.

5. Procedures for strategic environmental assessment in Western Australia
How best might strategic environmental assessment be undertaken in WA? The Environmental Protection Act 1986 (WA) was amended in late 2003 to allow for strategic environmental assessment, but Administrative Procedures are yet to be produced. This project would investigate practical means for implementing strategic environmental assessment under the EPAct including both policy and proposal-based approaches.

Current projects

I was recently Principal Investigator for:
- an Australian Development Research Award Scheme (ADRAS) funded project entitled: “Driving policy innovation in mine closure and abandonment management, environmental risk mitigation and rehabilitation of abandoned mine sites as a pro-development strategy” (May 2013 – May 2015); and
- an Australia Africa Universities Network funded project entitled “Integrating HIV and gender-related issues into environmental assessments for Australian mining companies operating in Africa” (April – August 2014)
which resulted in numerous mine-closure related publications. I am currently Course Director for an African Australia Award Fellowship funded by the Dept. of Foreign Affairs and Trade on Managing Mine Closure. This training course for 26 African participants from over 12 countries takes place in Western Australia and South Africa in 2016.

I am also involved in a range of research projects including preparation of a monograph on environmental impact assessment in Edward Elga’s ‘Advanced Introduction…’ series of titles. I was recently lead editor of a research book entitled: ‘Handbook of Sustainability Assessment’ commissioned by Edward Elgar and published in 2015; demonstrating benefits and sustainability contribution of impact assessment; mine closure for sustainable mining development; and effective tertiary teaching.

Doctoral and masters supervisions

At Murdoch University, I have supervised a range of Honours projects (ENV500), Masters projects (ENV600) as well as research PhDs. Most of these have focused on environmental impact assessment or sustainability assessment related research, but have also extended to environmental management outcomes relating to behavioural change and outcomes for environmental education and nature-based tourism programs, sustainability management systems and effects of climate change on agriculture. I supervise several Masters research projects and a PhD at North West University, South Africa. I welcome enquiries from potential students or co-supervisors for collaboration on doctoral and masters supervision.
