WA Teaching and Learning Forum 2022
3rd December

The WA Teaching and Learning Forum 2022 is on the 3rd and 4th of February, 2022 at Murdoch University, 90 South Street Murdoch, WA. This is an in-person conference.

This annual event has been going since 1992 for higher education teachers in Perth, Western Australia, but open to all participants interested in sharing and learning higher education practice.

Our theme for 2022 is (Re)connecting, given the unique changes, challenges, and contexts of higher education since 2020. The theme permeates both formal and informal activity through the two days.

The first keynote speaker is Prof Jane den Hollander, AO, and the second exciting speaker on connection and healing will be announced very soon.

CALLS FOR SUBMISSIONS are extended to 3rd December 2021. See about types of presentations and how to submit here: https://www.wateachingandlearningforum.org/tlf-presentations.

REGISTER NOW! to take advantage of end-of-year euphoria, to put something fun in your diary before you go on leave, to scrape it out of any remnant budget, and not to have FOMO.

Note: there are COVID-19 contingency plans, depending on government requirements at the time.

We have a fully funded PhD in Education position at the University of South Australia. Open to domestic and international applicants.

PhD Project: Education Video Puzzle - Develop video-based learning strategies for online/blended education

If you are seeking to advance your career in education and interested in developing video-based learning strategies for an increasingly online world, the University of South Australia—Australia’s University of Enterprise—is offering an innovative PhD project based in our Centre for Change and Complexity in Learning (C3L).

This project will explore which video-based learning strategies best support students in humanities vs STEM disciplines, the differences between students studying at different year levels, and how students in enabling sub-bachelor programs from a range of culturally and linguistically diverse and low socio-economic backgrounds best learn with videos.

Students as Partners (SaP) Series

Organised by Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL), The University of Hong Kong

Students as Partners (SaP) draws much attention from educators around the world as the partnership becomes a global trend to engage students to contribute to curriculum design, pedagogical conceptualisation, decision-making, implementation, investigation, and analysis in higher education. It creates excellent opportunities for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, curriculum development, and faculty professional development.

In this series, we invited global practitioners and researchers to talk about the best practices based on their successful projects or research works at different universities in Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Concerns and perspectives at different levels (e.g., daily teaching, curriculum/programme design, and institutional framework) will be discussed. Student partners will co-present in some sessions.

Join us and get inspired to start your own journey towards involving students as partners.

Online engagement activities research

The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) is undertaking a research project associated with Redmond, Heffernan, Abawi, Brown and Henderson’s (2018), Online Engagement Framework for Higher Education, http://dx.doi.org/10.24059/olj.v22i1.1175.

The purpose of this survey is to identify practice-based use of the five student engagement indicators: social engagement, cognitive engagement, behavioral engagement, collaborative engagement, and emotional engagement.

If you are employed in a higher education role relating to student engagement, or you are a higher education teacher we would encourage you to participate.

The survey is anonymous, and this research project has been approved by the University of Southern Queensland’s Human Research Ethics Committee.
