FACULTY OF EDUCATION, HUMANITIES AND LAW
2012 TEACHING AND LEARNING FORUM
Monday 3 December 2012
9.30am to 1.30pm (lunch included)
Room 2.09, International Room, Level 2, Education Building
The Faculty of Education, Humanities and Law has a proud record in relation to teaching excellence. SET scores are consistently among the highest in the university and a number of staff members of the Faculty have been successful in winning university and national teaching awards.
It is, naturally, a Flinders priority to ensure that high quality education occurs in its courses. Assessment – of learning, for learning, as learning – is a fundamental component of effective teaching practice. Changes to student demographics, the impact of technology, and the increased regulatory environment mean that assessment must be regarded as a front-of-mind characteristic of teaching planning and implementation. This forum will assist us to understand the many facets of assessment in modern higher education pedagogy.
All academic staff (permanent and sessional), and others interested, are encouraged to attend. The Faculty Committee on Teaching and Learning hopes that you will enjoy and benefit from the morning.
You may register by going to this webpage http://www.flinders.edu.au/ehl/education/rsvp-events.cfm , selecting Faculty Teaching and Learning Forum and clicking on RSVP by Monday 26 November.
