I’m pleased to announce the release of Quality Teaching@UNE. We are still collecting feedback and making minor changes, but we invite interested staff to self-enrol and begin engaging with the modules.
In 2015, the decision was made to better integrate our online approach to academic teaching and learning support and development. Quality Teaching@UNE:
- is structured around and informed by the draft UNE Principles of Quality Teaching;
- takes between 30 minutes to 2 hours to progress through each module,
- is wholly online and un-moderated. The modules are designed with mobile devices in mind and contain activities and media suitable for those ‘in-between’ moments of working life;
- provides multiple pathways of engagement: (i) modules can be used as a follow up for Peer Review of Teaching outcomes, (ii) progressing through all modules is suitable for academic probation requirements, or (iii) self-selecting modules and content areas on the basis of interest or alignment with PPDR actions, SoTL, HEA or OLT Teaching award applications or academic promotion;
- enables a record of engagement via micro-credentialing and a portfolio of recorded reflections and action plans.
Over the coming months, Quality Teaching@UNE will be integrated with our other teaching support resources, such as Teaching Online at UNE and other school-based resources and websites. In the meantime, please feel free to provide feedback or suggestions directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks to the TaLS design and development team (Subject Matter Expert: Dr Tanya Hathaway, LX Designers: Patricia Donald, Raphael Roberts and Daniel Scott) and special thanks to Sarah Thorneycroft and Steve Carruthers for their contribution to the initial concept and design.
