What is good practice in academic development? CAULLT webinar
Friday 12th April 2024 12PM

Academic development activities have now been researched for decades, but what has not yet been clearly established are the standards that define good practice in this field. Drawing on the outcomes of a systematic series of CAULLT funded initiates, which have focussed on advancing academic development, we will share our research on establishing criteria and associated standards for assessing good practice in academic development.

This workshop will enable academic developers and institutional leaders to contribute to the validation of the new standards. It will be of particular value to academic developers who are creating innovative initiatives for their institutions and to institutional leaders who are involved in quality assurance and enhancement processes. Upon validation the standards will become available to enable the benchmarking of institutional academic development practices, to evidence the value of existing and proposed initiatives, and to inform robust decision-making around prioritising and resourcing academic development initiatives.

Participants in the workshop will:
Gain insights into the action research process employed to determine what is good academic development practice;
Engage in an activity on assessing good practice examples;
Discuss the complexities of determining good practice;
Critique and contribute to the validation of the criteria and standards of good academic development, and
Identify how the standards can be applied to their institution and practice.

Facilitators: Associate Professor Marina Harvey (MQ), Professor Jillian Hamilton (QUT), Dr Andrea Adam (UTAS).
