Staff Development for Digital Learning Project
The Beacon of Enlightenment (p11) states that "during the Plan period the University will ... ensure that all new and existing teaching staff undertake development to better engage with digital learning." The staff development offerings available currently are:
- Technology Services IT training in MyUni focussing on training participants in the mechanics of using MyUni;
- eLearning Adviser sessions within their faculty on pedagogical or administrative topics such as eAssessment and group management within MyUni;
- University-wide events such as the Festival of Learning of Teaching, the Small Group Discovery workshops, HERGA Conference and smaller events on Flipped Classrooms etc.;
- Communities of practice around digital learning themes such as eAssessment.
This project will focus on the need to translate the Beacon statement into operational activities and establish broader recruitment and reporting mechanisms on teaching staff undertaking staff development.
