WA Teaching & Learning Forum 2020

Theme - Learning Without Limits: Educational Excellence and Equity

Thursday 30th January to Friday 31st January, 2020.

Edith Cowan University

About the theme:

The 2020 theme, Learning Without Limits: Educational Excellence and Equity is one that seeks to examine dimensions of educational equity, promote teaching excellence and advocate for the inclusive provision of pathways and outcomes for all. Higher Educational contexts are characterised by increasing diversity of students and the challenge to address persistent disparities in achievement and progression. Achieving equity and excellence in student outcomes comes through a shared responsibility for the success of all students.

Unpacking current practices in the sector and the systematic consideration of the quality, effectiveness or inclusiveness of policy, programmes or practice will illuminate patterns and trends in access and outcomes.

Perspectives that might be considered for workshops and presentations might include: innovative pedagogies and interventions specific to the needs and contexts of defined groups of students; how globalisation is changing the demographic of both academics and students across the sector and what this might mean for academic and service delivery; the challenges for leadership to create, guide and implement equity and excellence for the future of learning and teaching at institutional levels; the impact of personal or social circumstances, like gender, ethnicity, socio-economic status and family background on achieving educational potential; how to increase opportunities and access to resources and quality teachers and programs; and the development of evaluation processes that drive improvement and innovation.

These suggestions are not exhaustive, and you are invited to share your research and practice broadly.  Your university representative to the TLF committee would be a great person to use as a sounding board for your ideas, or to provide some early feedback on your proposed presentation. Contact details of committee members are provided below.  Where appropriate, presenters are encouraged to be as interactive and collaborative in their presentations as possible.
