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...

Call for EOI: co-editor of the International Journal for Academic Development (IJAD).
25 June 2018

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a co-editor position for the International Journal for Academic Development (IJAD). We are looking for a co-editor based in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, or South America to replace the position currently held by Dr Chng Huang Hoon (Singapore).

IJAD is the premier international journal for academic development (also called educational development and faculty development). Four issues of IJAD are published annually through Routledge/Taylor & Francis (http://www.tandfonline.com/ijad). The manuscript submission and review process is managed through the ScholarOne online system.

The co-editor appointment will be for 4 years (1 January 2019 until 31 December 2023) and the appointee will work collaboratively with the three ongoing co-editors—Dr Klara Bolander Laksov (Sweden), Dr Peter Felten (USA), and Dr Kathryn Sutherland (New Zealand)—and the four associate editors. Normally the editorial team chooses an associate editor from the same region as the new co-editor in consultation with that co-editor.

The role of co-editor provides opportunity to influence the academic development research agenda and to expand linkages between one’s own region and the international academic development community. The position is voluntary, involves working to tight deadlines, and participating in monthly online meetings. Typically, at least one co-editor attends the ICED Council meeting each year.

Applications from individuals who would like to join the team are welcome. 

Brief written expressions of interest should be e-mailed to Dr Allan Goody, President of the International Consortium for Educational Development (agoody56@gmail.com), no later than 25 June 2018 and should
a. outline your reasons for wanting to undertake the role,
b. address the selection criteria below,
c. provide the names of two members of the international academic development community who are willing to be contacted as referees, and
d. include your current Curriculum Vitae.

The following criteria are essential:
1. Active scholar in academic/educational/faculty development, with a record of publications in this area.
2. Passionate about academic development in higher education and committed to encouraging high-quality academic research and publications in the field.
3. Professionally active in a continent not otherwise represented by a current co-editor (i.e. NOT Europe, North America, or Oceania).
4. Experienced in editing and publishing and aware of issues associated with editing an international journal.
5. Excellent organisational and communication skills and demonstrable ability to work to tight deadlines.
6. Demonstrated ability to work well with others (for example, joint publications, grants, member of a national network, etc.).
7. Willing to participate in regular editorial meetings through online video conferencing (often scheduled outside working hours in order to accommodate the schedules of co-editors from four different continents).
8. Committed to the goals of the journal’s parent organisation, the International Consortium for Educational Development (ICED): http://icedonline.net/
9. Membership in one of the member networks of ICED.

In addition, the following criteria are desirable:
10. Familiarity with online manuscript management systems.
11. Familiarity with APA referencing, copy-editing, or access to administrative support for copy-editing.
12. Ability to start by 1 January 2019.

Questions? Please contact one of the co-editors - Chng Huang Hoon, Peter Felten, Klara Bolander Laksov, and Kathryn Sutherland.

Dear Colleagues, 

Universities around the world are grappling with the challenge of establishing a learning and teaching culture that is built upon the notion of teaching excellence. Such initiatives inevitably involve stakeholders at all levels of the university, from faculty members who teach in the classroom, to academic heads who lead and manage the culture, and senior management who are responsible for establishing policy direction and strategy. This conference will draw on wisdom from each of these constituencies, who, together, Co-Construct Excellence in university learning and teaching.

We warmly invite you to participate in this conference, held at the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning of the University of Hong Kong. The main aim of the conference will be to explore, and achieve some measure of consensus on, how we define and measure teaching excellence, and how we set about building, recognising and reinforcing a culture of teaching excellence in our institutions.

Types of submission 
(1) Paper (500-word abstract) 
(2) Join-the-Conversation Session (500-word abstract) 
(3) Poster (300-word summary)

Important dates 
Deadline for Abstract/ Summary Submission: 30 June 2018
Notification of Acceptance: 31 July 2018
Deadline for Early Bird Registration: 31 August 2018
