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...

Invitation to participate in a study
30 June 2018

Below is a hyperlink to an online survey on academic research integrity led by A/Prof Twan Huybers of UNSW Canberra (UNSW Human Research Ethics Committee Approval Number HC171045). We use a method called Best-Worst Scaling to assess academics’ views on ‘The Singapore Statement on Research Integrity’ and we ask for broader perceptions on responsible research conduct. We hope to use the insights from this study to enhance efforts to promote integrity in academic research.

The target audience is current academic staff members (including postdoctoral staff) at universities around the world who engage in academic research (whether full-time or part-time).

The survey is anonymous and should take no longer than 10 to 15 minutes. Taking part in this study is voluntary. You may withdraw from the online survey at any time before submitting your responses; in that case, your data will not be kept. 

Many thanks for contributing to this study!

Engaging in teaching and leanring partnership: New research on students as partners

We are delighted to let you know that the third issue of the International Journal for Students as Partners (IJSaP) is available from https://mulpress.mcmaster.ca/ijsap/issue/view/347

The journal, which is hosted by McMaster University Library Press, is co-edited by students and staff/ faculty from Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US. Traditionally students have largely been excluded from engaging in academic publishing.1

In Issue 2.1 you will find an editorial, an opinion piece, 6 research articles, a reflective essay, two case studies, and a book review. Together these contributions have been written by 21 faculty/staff and 13 students from 5 different countries.

If you enjoy this issue we hope you will support the journal in a variety of ways including:
a) Writing for the journal in any of the genres we publish. Please contact us with your ideas. We encourage you to send us (ijsap@mcmaster.ca) your proposals for articles, case studies, or reflective pieces before you submit them using our proforma https://tinyurl.com/IJSaPproposal.
b) Reviewing for IJSaP. We will provide training for inexperienced reviewers. If you are interested, please complete the reviewer expression of interest form.
c) Telling others about the journal and contributions that you find particularly interesting. E.g. by forwarding this email to your local and disciplinary teaching and learning networks, and commenting on Twitter: @InterJournalSaP
d) Checking that your library lists IJSaP in their catalogue and knowing it is freely available from https://mulpress.mcmaster.ca/ijsap.

We welcome hearing your views about the journal. Please send us an email (ijsap@mcmaster.ca).
