CAULLT Leadership Webinar
Wednesday 29 July, 11-12 AEST

The first CAULLT Learning Leadership Webinar will be held on Wednesday 29 July, 11-12 AEST (including a Q & A).

Titled Leadership for supporting inclusion and diversity in the Academy, presenter, Dr Gail Crimmins (University of the Sunshine Coast), will give tried and tested strategies and interventions from the presenter’s new book that support student and faculty inclusion and engagement.

COVID-19 and the globally mediated killing of George Floyd have highlighted significant inter/national social and cultural inequities, and have illuminated how inequities based along lines of race, socio-economic status/social class, gender, and dis/ability are both reflected in and have the opportunity to be addressed within Higher Education systems.

Dr Crimmins’ book captures specific examples of inclusive practice/s that are as diverse as the student and faculty populations, and are easy to translate and/or employ by senior administrators, academics and learning access/student support staff.

In this webinar she will outline four principles of inclusivity that underpin specific interventions and discuss in detail the interventions that can be adopted by leaders of learning and teaching.

International Journal for Students as Partners: call for proposals for Special Section, 2022

Special sections in IJSaP are a curated collection of works (research articles, reflections, case studies, opinion pieces and other appropriate genres) that delve deeper into an overarching theme or explore emerging issues important for the field of Students as Partners to offer new scholarly and practical insights that advance existing, or provoke new, debates in the field. We welcome ideas for the focus from potential Special Section Editors. Examples of possible foci include: ‘How Online Teaching and Learning Clarifies What Matters in Students-as-Partners Work’; ‘Different Perspectives on What Partnership Means’; and ‘Critical Perspectives on Partnership’.

Proposals are welcome from prospective guest editors who have interest and expertise in the topic proposed, which should clearly fit into IJSaP’s focus on Students as Partners. Guest editorial teams should include both students and staff/faculty – a team of only staff/faculty or students may apply and add co-editors once accepted to meet this criterion. As an international journal we welcome proposals from international teams. Members of the journal’s editorial board and international advisory group are eligible to propose topics.

Save the date: Academic Development and ASCILITE TELedvisor SIGs joint virtual symposium

The Academic Development SIG has joint forces with colleagues from ASCILITE Technology Enhance Learning and are pleased to announce that we will jointly host a virtual symposium on "Lessons learned from the COVID-19 response" on Friday, September 4, from 12:00 - 6:00 pm New Zealand time (10:00 - 4:00 Australian Eastern; 8:00 - 2:00 Australian Western)

In the response to COVID-19, higher education rapidly shifted its teaching and learning online. E-learning support and academic developers were at the front of supporting these efforts. In this virtual symposium, we take stock of what we learned from our joint efforts, what went well, issues we ran into, how those got resolved. We will also discuss what opportunities emerged, and how we can support the teaching and learning in our institutions post-response, in a COVID and post-COVID world to inform the strategic discussions at our institutions.

Details and registration information to follow shortly.

For queries, please contact erik.brogt@canterbury.ac.nz
