Preparing for Teaching 2020

Are you teaching at Flinders in 2020? Need a refresher on FLO or how the Library works? There is a range of support available to help you prepare.

Need help with your Readings list or navigating the Readings system? Contact the Learning Access team via the Readings query in Service One (choose Education Services) for help. Links to the Readings system can be found in your FLO sites, and a help guide is available. The great thing about the Readings system is that the Library will make sure your resources are compliant with copyright and legislative requirements so that the University can meet its legal obligations, which means you don’t need to worry about this. Hooray!

Resources for teaching
View the Copyright website to find out about educational resources e.g. audio, images, video, that you can use to supplement teaching material. Use the  Service One form for any specific queries about copyright in material you wish to use.

Have you heard about Open Educational Resources (OERs)? OERs include: textbooks, quizzes, full courses, lesson plans, syllabus, modules, case studies, assignments, multimedia, images + more! For how to search for OERs in textbook, image, multimedia, (and other) formats, visit the Creative Commons OER page.

Use the official University textbook form (FAN login) to notify the Library, Disability Services and Co-Op bookshop of your required and recommended textbook needs. A link is also in your FLO topics (Topic links block). Contact the Learning Access team (choose Education Services) for help.

Flinders Learning Online (FLO)
Need help applying your magic to update your FLO site before students get access (exactly one week before the topic starts)? Take a look at the Preparing for teaching in FLO site, or this handy checklist that lists the essential tasks to do in your FLO site before students have access. If you need design advice, you can book a session with the Learning Designer in your college. You can also contact eLearning Support via Service One (choose Education Services – FLO General Query).

Teaching practice and topic design
The Academic Development team can help translate your teaching ideas into a solid teaching plan for your topic and how you teach it. Visit the Learning and Teaching pages or contact CILT to speak with an academic developer. You could also come along to one of their workshops, most of which are available across campuses via videoconference or Collaborate on request.

Library familiarisation for students
The Library Teaching and Learning team can help your students learn the information and research skills they need to succeed at university. For more ideas on how our team can help you and your students, visit our showcase topic in FLO. Contact us via Service One using the form Embedding library skills in my topic (choose Education Services).
