Contemporary Approaches to University Teaching MOOC Semester 2
5 July 2024 – 15 December 2024

Contemporary Approaches to University Teaching MOOC Semester 2
Enrolments have opened for Semester 2, 2024 Contemporary Approaches to University Teaching MOOC. There are 24 modules to choose from!

This course is for those who:
• teach in higher education anywhere in the world
• want content designed by learning and teaching experts
• seek to enhance their teaching and their students’ learning
• are interested in scoping the course for their institution’s professional development program
• are sessional, contract or continuing teachers.

You can choose which modules you explore and when, but we recommend one of the four pathways: new to teaching, enhancing student learning, enhancing your teaching practice or leading learning and teaching. An enhanced feature is that participants completing any of the four pathways can receive a digital badge for that pathway. Study is self-paced in two-hour modules that can be completed over a semester.

MOOC content is available to universities to share and adapt under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. The course is presented under the auspices of the Council of Australasian University Leaders in Learning and Teaching (CAULLT) and is led by Professor Agnes Bosanquet (Torrens University) and A/Prof Marina Harvey (Macquarie University).

CRADLE Seminar Series: Assessment beyond the individual unit/module: What it is, and why it matters in the age of gen AI?
Wednesday 17 July 2024 2.00pm - 3.30pm (AEST)

Together with colleagues from the University of Queensland, Associate Professor Jason Lodge, and Edith Cowen University, Professor Rowena Harper, CRADLE researchers Professor Phillip Dawson and Professor Margaret Bearman will unpack the topical questions arising from generative AI and future directions for assessment.

The emergence of generative AI has highlighted existing assessment challenges in higher education and created new problems. These issues are unlikely to be addressed by tweaking individual tasks or revising assessment at a unit/subject level. As is made clear in the guidance outlined in Assessment Reform for the Age of Artificial Intelligence, commissioned and published by TEQSA, a systemic approach to assessment is now essential. However, there is some uncertainty about what this kind of approach is, why it is important, and how it can be achieved. This webinar will explore the what, why and how of these approaches.

CRADLE Seminar Series: Second Handbook of Academic Integrity (2024) launch - Dr Elaine Eaton and Prof Phillip Dawson
24 July 2024 12.00pm - 1.30pm (AEST)

Dr Sarah Elaine Eaton, Associate Professor, University of Calgary and Honorary Associate Professor Deakin University will lead this launch as the reference work's editor in chief. Contributors to the handbook will be on hand to answer questions and offer insights into their contributions, including CRADLE's Professor Phillip Dawson.

This major reference work spans three volumes, with 112 chapters contributed by 145 authors. All major topics related to academic integrity are covered including contract cheating, plagiarism, assessment security, and the impact of generative artificial intelligence on teaching, learning, assessment, and academic misconduct.

This broad and comprehensive reference work on academic integrity demonstrates commonalities and differences between regions and approaches on an international scale across many countries. It also engages with, and agitates, controversial debates such as, for example, the use of surveillance technologies to address academic misconduct and the causes of academic integrity breaches.

There is a burgeoning interest in the importance of academic integrity, how to safeguard it and how to address breaches appropriately. Join us for this compelling and topical presentation online.

The Technology Enhanced Learning Accreditation Standards (TELAS) are a set of internationally benchmarked standards designed to assess the quality of online learning, particularly in relation to the tertiary sector. They provide institutions with the means to assess and evaluate the affordances of their online learning environments and thereby guide quality enhancements. For more information about TELAS visit our website - https://www.telas.edu.au

Our workshop supports your knowledge of the standards and is the first step to becoming a certified TELAS reviewer. No matter what your role is at your institution, you will find these workshops informative and interactive.

Upcoming workshop online (split across two half days)
August 1 and 2 (10am – 1.30pm)

The cost of Reviewer Certification Workshops is:
Online: $275 (incl GST) for members and $425 (incl GST) for non-members*
The non-member fee includes a 12 month membership in ASCILITE. Further details including workshop pre-work and a calendar invite are provided after registering. Payment may be made online (incurs transaction fee) or you may opt to be invoiced.

Invitation to participate in research on stakeholder engagement in university discipline based advisory committees

Discipline or course based advisory committees are important structures that enable universities to gain information about current and future trends in industry. This research aims to examine the benefits for stakeholders (i.e., alumni, students, industry professionals and academics) of participation in university course advisory committees (CACs); explore what sustains this engagement; and identify any constraints to continued participation in CAC faced by stakeholders.

Academics who are chairs and/or members of a course based advisory committee are invited to participate in this research. For further information and to obtain a participant information statement please contact Kath Attree via email (see below). This research is being conducted as part of the researchers’ doctoral studies at Swinburne University of Technology.
