HERDSA TATAL Adelaide 2018
19th June 2018 commencement of online TATAL

Take some time at HERDSA 2018 to Talk About “your” Teaching And Learning (TATAL) 

Is it time to ‘hit the pause button’ and reflect on my teaching? Do I have a teaching philosophy? Well! TATAL might be for you. The 8th HERDSA TATAL workshop offers an opportunity to share, reflect and review the values and beliefs that underlie your approach to teaching and learning. 

We’re ‘flipping out’ at Adelaide HERDSA TATAL this year. The half-day workshop is supported by an online preconference learning experience. Following the conference, you can continue the experience with the workshop group to develop a teaching portfolio suitable for a HERDSA Fellowship application. 

Register for TATAL by Monday 18th June (online portion commences June 19). There is a maximum of 30 participants, so register early. Go to http://herdsa2018.aomevents.com.au/pre-conference/#pre_conference_worksh...
