HERDSA Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Webinar
Thursday 13th October 2022

The aim of the webinar is to introduce participants to the valuable HERDSA Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) online learning modules. The modules introduce new scholars to the role and value of SoTL in an academic’s professional learning plan and remind experienced scholars of the process of designing and implementing a SoTL project. In the webinar, participants will be briefly guided through an overview of each of the five modules and discuss the breadth of approaches to engaging with the modules as individuals, communities of practice, and as part of formal learning and teaching accreditation programs. The modules can be accessed individually by HERDSA members, and an institutional license is available for purchase.

Presented by Associate Professor Deb Clarke, Lead author, HERDSA SoTL modules

Deakin University Survey into AI in the professional workplace
Survey Closes 18 November 2022

There is considerable hype about the increasing integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) into K-12 education contexts. We are higher education researchers interested in what actually happens in practice. We’d like to hear about your experiences – or lack of experience – with AI or AI-mediated technologies in Australian schools. Sharing your experience and/or views will help better understand how new education graduates can learn to work in future AI-mediated environments. Deakin University invites you to take 15-20 minutes out of your day to complete this survey. You can, if you like, enter your details separately for a chance to win a pair of Bose noise-cancelling headphones.

Please feel free to forward the survey link to anyone that you think might be interested.

This study has received Deakin University ethics approval (HAE-21-172).

Learning design post the pandemic

What might learning design become in the post-COVID university?

This rich chapter by Prof Sue Bennett of Wollongong University reflects on the history of learning design within the Australia context, as well as insights into how learning design might evolve in the future - https://bit.ly/Bennett_Learning_Design_Voices. This is a preprint from the forthcoming book "Learning Design Voices' and is offered with a response from Sukaina Walji https://bit.ly/Walji_Learning_Design_Voices.
