HERDSA Webinar Series - Understanding Australian higher education: the private sector
13th June 2024 - 12.00 to 1.00pm AEST

At this coffee catch up we'll discuss private higher education in Australia. 10% of Australian higher education students choose to study at Institutes of Higher Education. The sector comprises 134 teaching-focussed specialist Institutes; QILT data evidences that they earn consistently higher student satisfaction than their public counterparts. What do you want to know about private HE? What's is like to work in the sector? The intention of the session is to build members' awareness of the Australian higher education sector generally and the private sector specifically.


Professor Christy Collis
Christy Collis is Provost of two Institutes of Higher Education: Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors and Endeavour College of Natural Health. Both are owned by UP Education. Before working with UP Christy spent over 30 years in the Australian public higher education subsector. Christy is a longstanding member of the HERDSA QLD branch executive and the President-elect of HERDSA.

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Special Interest Group Meeting

Our next meeting is scheduled for Friday, 21 June 2024, 12.00–1.00 pm (Sydney time). It will be an exciting meeting as we have invited Professor Kelly Matthews from the University of Queensland to facilitate a workshop on "Getting Published: Set-up and Planning".

About Kelly:
Professor Kelly Matthews is from the University of Queensland. Kelly has co-authored the open-access, well-received textbook on writing about teaching and learning with Professor Mick Healey (UK) and Professor Alison Cook-Sather (USA) that is published by Elon University Center for Engaged Learning (USA).
You can access Kelly's list of work here: https://lnkd.in/gh7dtMmh

Workshop Focus:
Getting published is important for many of us in SoTL. For some, writing about teaching and learning comes easily. For some, it does not. In this workshop, we'll zoom in on getting started with writing: values, writing genre, and clever planning tools. If useful and well-attended, we'll make this a series! Future sessions - on writing frameworks, navigating collaboration, peer reviewers, and imposter syndrome. This workshop will draw on a free, open-access resource, “Writing about Teaching and Learning in Higher Education”.
**Please note this workshop is NOT about conducting research.

Register for this meeting here: https://unisq.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMpduuqqT8oE9eNBtwMqrc7Bvim1eNqfKsj. And don't forget to add it to your calendar!

Please note that the SoTL SIG meetings are scheduled for the third Friday of each month from 12.00–1.00 pm (Sydney time).

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 this topical presentation online.
