Foundations in learning and teaching

Foundations in learning and teaching

This program provides staff who are either new to teaching or who want to explore aspects of learning and teaching practice with the knowledge and skills to enable them to operate as effective teachers.

At the end of the interactive program, participants will be able to:

  • draw upon the theoretical underpinnings of scholarly practice in learning and teaching to identify activities that foster student-centred learning and engagement in both face-to-face and online environments
  • investigate their own teaching and student learning context
  • demonstrate how to align unit outcomes, learning activities, assessment tasks and the provision of feedback to students within a program-based framework
  • identify activities that incorporate inter-cultural and global perspectives into learning and teaching activities and support accessibility
  • employ critical reflection (self, peer, student, literature) to their own learning and teaching practice by developing and documenting strategies for improvement (eg in a teaching portfolio)
  • apply e-learning strategies and tools for specific teaching contexts
  • easily incorporate key policies, plans, support structures and strategies into their own learning and teaching activities.

Upon completion, certificates of completion are provided that are recognised as formal academic professional development.

This program will run again in Session 2, 2018. Please email for further details.
