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.
At this year’s Learn Do Share, staff from across the University of Auckland came together to share how they’ve taken Canvas, the University’s Learning Management System, to the next level in blending pedagogy and technology.
Teaching spaces are fast changing to accommodate new approaches to curriculum and pedagogical advances. Separate lab, lecture, and tutorial spaces are increasingly being combined to promote active and collaborative learning in a streamlined approach.
ILT is excited to host its annual half-year symposium, Learn Do Share: Canvas Plus.
This September, we’ll be looking to the future! Staff from across the University will be joining us to share how they’ve taken Canvas, the University’s Learning Management System, to the next level in blending pedagogy and technology.
Embedding employability skills into academic curricula is a key concern for universities and tertiary education institutions today.
This topic was the focus of a University of Auckland Business School (UABS) workshop on the 12th June entitled ‘University and beyond: embedding employability and life into the curriculum’ run by Professor Susan Geertshuis, Narissa Lewis, and Patricia Hubbard.
The theme for this year’s Teaching Forum was ‘Think BIG.. start small.’
Innovative teaching is sometimes too big a problem to tackle easily so the focus of this year’s symposium was on adopting small changes to teaching practice designed to have a big impact on learning outcomes for students.
The pressure on universities to move content online has initiated conversation about the purpose and value of the lecture theatre as a teaching ‘space’. Central to the defence of the lecture theatre is its social nature; students physically gather together to learn from, and with, one another, as a collective.
