Forums often feature presentations to stimulate discussion. However, the purpose of these sessions is to provide staff with the opportunity for a focused discussion on a theme with colleagues and international experts. Participants can share information, raise questions, discuss issues and network. All staff from the University are invited to attend these seminars.
Please check the schedule to register for upcoming events.
Past teaching and learning forum series featured the following sessions:
Learning in the 21st century is changing. Physical spaces convey important messages to students, and may establish or indeed dismantle institutional expectations about learning. So, our physical spaces literally embody our institutional values and strategies in support of learning. Learning spaces are evolving to meet these new challenges, but how so at Deakin?
The Flexible learning spaces forum showcased several initiatives at Deakin and the leaders who have promoted them. Presenters included:
The Academic developers' networking forum builds on staff capabilities through the development of networks between ITL, Faculty Academic Developers and Knowledge Media Division's (KMD) Learning Designers with the central aim of developing teaching and learning in higher education at Deakin. The forum provides an environment for the exploration of problems and solutions that arise from diverse aspects in teaching and learning and for the sharing of practice as a process of accomplishing common goals in teaching. The network is designed as a mechanism that seeks to investigate the relationship between teaching and learning and how academic developers can initialise developments within their own Faculty, which lead to excellence, improvements and engagement in all areas of teaching and learning.
This interactive forum showcased developments in work-integrated learning approaches from around the country.
The Teaching and Learning Forums are full day events featuring a diverse program that included:
This interactive forum led by Dr Dale Holt and Stephen Segrave showcased Deakin University, RMIT and CSU eSimulations and explored how they were being used to enhance teaching and learning. The forum formed part of the dissemination strategy of a joint Australian Learning and Teaching Council (ALTC) project.
