Workshops at Murdoch University, South Street Campus: Thursday 7th and Friday 8th December 2017:

Interactive Presentation 1: Developing students as partners in learning and teaching

Thurs 7th Dec  |  10.00 am - 1.00pm  |  ECL - Postgrad Teaching Space, 460.1.031, 460 - ECL

Ways of engaging students in higher education as partners in learning and teaching is arguably one of the most important issues facing higher education in the 21st Century. Partnership is essentially a process for engaging students, though not all engagement involves partnership. It is a way of doing things, rather than an outcome in itself. This interactive session will explore four ways in which students may be engaged as partners through: a) Learning, teaching and assessment; b) Subject-based research and inquiry; c) Scholarship of teaching and learning; and d) Curriculum design and pedagogic advice and consultancy. 

Interactive Presentation 2: Rethinking capstones and final year projects

Fri 8th Dec  |  9.30 am - 12.300pm  |  ECL - Postgrad Teaching Space, 460.1.031, 460 - ECL

This interactive presentation will explore ways in which we can rethink capstone and final year projects, while at the same time retaining a significant element of research and inquiry and deliver key graduate attributes. Our argument is that a more flexible approach is needed in the form, function and assessment of capstone and final year projects to meet the needs of all students. These may include group, work-oriented and community-based projects
