Psychology is leading the charge on iTeach!

Congratulations to the Psychology team for kicking us off in our posts for the L&T Symposium. To the other Schools…it’s time to play catchup! What are you doing in your teaching that others might like to hear about? There are some great things happening in FoBJBS…we’ve seen them. Now it’s time to share…

Just to recap…

This year, we’re asking you to present a POST, not a slideshow, as the basis for your Symposium contribution. Read more about why, and the role you’ll play in the actual symposium (beyond your post).

Your post will need to be completed by 15 July 2019 and should be created in iTeach (we’ve created a quick guide to help you. iTeach is CSU’s community space for sharing practice. You don’t need to wait for others to share what you are doing – you can write a post directly to the blog without any need for special access.


A sneak peak…

The great thing about posting in this way is that you can see posts as they come through…yes, the Symposium has actually STARTED! Forget about just having 2 days to share your teaching with each other…we’re sharing NOW…and can continue the conversation well beyond the Symposium itself.

Here’s a couple of posts that have already been published…

Rachel Fox has implemented an innovative design whereby students learn about qualitative research while they are engaging in concrete research activities and completing a real research project. The project is based on a topic which challenges them to think differently and critically about the profession. The design of the research also allows for substantial academic dissemination of findings. Click on the image to read her post in iTeach.

Nicole Sugden has written about the various technologies she’s been using to create interactive experiences for her students that contextualise their learning. From Smart Sparrow to Adobe Captivate, Mentimeter h5P and Panopto, she offers examples of how these interactives are enhancing her students’ learning experiences.

Learning analytics
Nicole and her colleagues – Jasmine MacDonald and Robyn Brunton – went one step further and worked with the Learning Analytics team to find out what data, beyond basic site analytics, could tell them about how students were interacting with these activities.

How can you submit a post?

Incredibly easily. We’ve created a step-by-step guide to help you. For those who would like a walk-through, look out for an invitation in your calendar this week.
