HERDSA Heroes in Higher Education Awards
Closing date 5pm AEST on 14th May 2021

HERDSA is pleased to announce they will be giving 5 new awards this year called HERDSA Heroes in Higher Education. There are five awards of $500 each.

These awards recognise academic generosity in challenging times, with an opportunity to show gratitude by recognising the generosity of a colleague or team of colleagues, who have supported you or others in an unexpected/exceptional way during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This academic generosity may be in the areas of research, teaching, service, or academic development. The generosity received may be something “tangible” (e.g., outstanding support with shifting to online teaching and learning), or more “intangible” (e.g., helping you to feel a sense of belonging and connectedness in a time of isolation). Close of submission by
5pm on 14th May 2021

Call for proposals for e-book on applying science of learning in education
May 1, 2021

The e-book editors of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (APA, Division 2) have commissioned the preparation of "In their own words: What scholars want you to know about why and how to apply the science of learning in your academic setting (Editors: Catherine Overson, Christopher Hakala, Lauren Kordonowy, & Victor Benassi). The editors invite potential authors to submit proposals for chapters to appear in a section of the book titled “Putting the Science of Learning into Practice.” Authors of accepted proposals will be notified and provided with detailed instructions on how to prepare and submit their chapters. The chapters will follow a similar format to that used in the 2014 STP e-book on Applying the Science of Learning in Education section titled “Putting the Science of Learning into Practice.” The proposal submission due date is May 1, 2021. For more information about the book and proposal submission:

Teaching-focused faculty and SoTL - New ISSoTL website

It is our very great pleasure to announce the teaching-focused faculty and SoTL website release. Please view https://sotlteachingfocusedfaculty.wordpress.com/ and share widely with contingent faculty colleagues. We hope that the website will do more than report on the project and will become a means to connect teaching-focused colleagues with others in similar roles.

This project, which was originally an initiative of the ISSoTL Advocacy and Outreach Committee, is also reported in our recent TLI paper:
Simmons, N., Eady, M. J., Scharff, L., & Gregory, D. (2021). SoTL in the margins: Teaching-focused role case studies. Teaching and Learning Inquiry, 9(1), 61-78.

With kindest regards,

Dr. Nicola Simmons, Instructional Limited Term Appointment
Educational Studies, Brock University
