Call for Papers/ Special Issue 'Advancing non-placement WIL across the degree'
:31st January 2020

In recent years, WIL activity has extended beyond placement to include a range of simulated, authentic and industry-based activities. While these non-placement learning activities are growing, the research that underscores their utility, innovation and evaluation presents an opportunity for further investigation. This special issue of the Journal of University Teaching & Learning Practice (JUTLP) aims to showcase international scholarship that investigates non-placement WIL activities that enhance students’ preparation for the workforce.
Papers due 31st January 2020. Submission or enquires please email Dr Bonnie Dean bonnie_dean@uow.edu.au

Opportunity for teachers and lecturers to visit China in a cultural exchange

The JESIE Teachers Training Project (Jiangsu Education Services for International Exchange) started in 2004, and each year sends around 120 short-term, volunteer foreign teachers for 2-4 weeks, to train Chinese teachers and improve their teaching pedagogy and strategies. It's also a great chance for foreign teachers to experience a different culture, and understand our own international students a little better.

The dates for 2020 are July 3-15 or July 3-29. Applications are open now. Visit the website, www.teachinjiangsu.org or contact cath.fraser@toiohomai.ac.nz for more information.

Your Experiences in Collaborative Learning and Students with Disability

YOUR EXPERIENCES WANTED. This project investigates student and staff experiences of collaborative learning in order to develop guidelines that can inform best practice teaching. As part of this research, we have run focus groups with students with disabilities to share their experiences. We are using an online questionnaire to collate staff experiences, suggestions and strategies. Your participation will contribute towards research that develops better education programs which encourage collaborative learning, and foster a safe and effective learning environment for all students.
