Centre for Teaching and Learning Quick Update

As the University community prepares for 2014, the Centre for Teaching and Learning has a number of programs to help you plan your teaching activities for the new academic year.

  • Course Design Retreat | 29 January: CTL's course design retreats give you an opportunity to evaluate your course and target areas for further development.  You'll map your course, align assessments with learning outcomes, and identify areas where educational technologies can be leveraged.
  • Professional Certificate in University Assessment | 24 February: CTL's professional certificate is designed to promote best practice in assessment design at a practical level, while also accommodating challenging work schedules.
  •  Fundamentals of University Teaching Certificate | 26 February: Designed to orient sessional academic staff to teaching in the university setting, a key part of this certificate is developing a teaching portfolio that will be useful in your future academic career.

For more information or to register, visit our Professional Development page or call 4921 5350.

Our regular monthly newsletter CTL Connect will be sent out again in mid-February.
