Innovations in Teaching and Learning

Seminar series

This new series of seminars will have a strong focus on teaching and learning research and evaluation including case studies and empirical investigations of innovation in practice. Topics will cover a broad range of teaching and learning innovations often focusing on the use of technology in higher education, but not exclusively so. The seminars will be presented by a range of academics from both within the University and from other Australian and international universities.

These seminars are open to any member of the University and public. They are designed to stimulate discussion and reflection around teaching and learning innovation in higher education. The seminar format will include plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Seminars will run fortnightly on Wednesdays between 1pm – 2pm.

Learning & Teaching Initiative Grants: What have we done? Where might we go?

Wednesday 15 October, 1-2pm

During the past several years the The University of Melburne has invested significant money into Learning and Teaching Initiative Grants. In the past three years alone, these grants, ranging from $2000 to $60,000, have supported more than 120 individual projects aimed at improving the way students learn. Most of these projects are in the “eLearning” space. But what do these projects look like? Have they been successful? What are the lessons that have been learnt and ideas that can be deployed to other discipline areas? In this seminar we will provide an overview of these eLearning projects, discuss themes that emerge and ideas that might be transferrable to other areas of learning. We will address the issue of how to share and disseminate innovations like these.
