This year’s Learn Do Share was a great success with record numbers of staff from a range of Faculties and Service Divisions coming together to hear how our speakers have successfully blended technology with assessment and feedback.
The University believes that Scholars, Innovators, Leaders and Global Citizens need advanced capabilities in six educational themes. All degrees across all disciplines will address the six themes in ways that are appropriate to the discipline of study.
The Business School has developed embedded graduate profiles for each of its programmes so that students, staff, and employers can see the specific capabilities our students will develop.
The Learning Hub is an online, easily accessible resource created by the Academic Skills Team in the Business School. The purpose of Learning Hub is to support the development of academic skills such as critical thinking, time management, numeracy, referencing and note taking. It also includes tips on working in groups and how to give an engaging an effective presentation. These key skills support the development of soft skills sought by employers and help to develop the University’s graduate profile in our graduates.
The One Button Studio was launched and bookings were made available to all University of Auckland staff at the end of March this year. Uptake from the Business School has been considerable, and departments have been taking advantage of the different functions and recording layouts to meet their individual needs.
There are many benefits of the AdvanceHE fellowship scheme and at an ILT workshop held on 21 March 2018, I shared tips for applying for HEA fellowship along with AP Lesley Gardner, Dr Rhiannon Lloyd and Ruth Dimes who had all gone through the fellowship process.
2017 saw the Business School agree new Graduate Profiles for each of our qualifications. All graduates will, during their time at the University of Auckland, have the opportunity to transform themselves as Scholars, Innovators, Leaders and Global Citizens.
Have you ever wondered what learning is like from a student’s perspective? Perhaps you’d examine your own teaching in a different light if you were the one undertaking study? In this month’s ILT seminar, I shared how my recent experiences as a student have led me to reflect on, and change, my own teaching practice.
At ILT’s Learn Do Share 2017, Sally Eberhard shared a number of her most popular Canvas ‘Tips and Tricks’ with attendees.
As part of her session, Sally also invited attendees to share their own tips and tricks. All these valuable ideas, tips, tricks, and reminders have been helpfully consolidated into a Google Form which can be edited so that anyone can add to it.
Throughout the year, I’ve been sharing with the Business School some of the not so well-known features of Canvas, the University’s learning management system. These small, but very helpful ‘Tips and Tricks,’ have proven to be pretty popular with staff within, and outside of, the Faculty.
