Launching CONNECTIONS in Learning and Teaching – 2009

Posted by on September 21st, 2009 · Announcements

A suite of four monthly seminars under the heading of CONNECTIONS will be facilitated by Learning and Teaching at UNSW. All seminars will be held on Wednesday from 12-1:30pm in the Climate Change Research Centre seminar room, level 4, Mathews Building (next door to L&T workshop room 416).

1. Talking about Teaching
This monthly seminar is aimed at providing an opportunity for conversations and sharing ideas and strategies around teaching. The seminar will be held monthly on the first Wednesday in the month.   This seminar series will be informal in structure and take the form of talking about teaching as “work in progress” rather than a presentation of finalized teaching cases.  Each session will have a theme, the first being “Student Engagement”.

2. Showcasing Teaching
This seminar series is intended to provide a forum for presenting and discussing good practice in learning and teaching, with invited speakers providing insight into their practice.  These sessions will be held on the second Wednesday in the month.  Invited presenters will come along to share their practice in learning and teaching, followed by questions and a discussion on the issues and strategies raised.

3. Researching Learning and Teaching
This seminar series will focus on research in learning and teaching and discussions around the scholarship of learning and teaching. These sessions will offer opportunities for those investigating aspects of teaching and learning to present and receive peer feedback on their ideas and papers. In addition, it will provide a forum through which we explore current thinking and research drawing from recent conferences and journal articles. The sessions will be held on the third Wednesday of the month.
