Learning & Teaching Week 2020: Call for items

This year’s Learning & Teaching Week will dispense with keynotes, workshops, and information sessions. Instead, it will be a creative celebration of teaching and learning at Flinders University featuring works by, for and about academics and students, displayed and shared primarily online throughout November 2020.

Called This Academic Life: Artefacts of Teaching and Learning, the centrepiece of the event will be a cinemagraphic exhibition of portraits of academics, displayed both on campus in Studio 2 but also digitally on a dedicated website.

The website will also host other ‘virtual artefacts’ in the form of:

  • Digital testimonies of teaching award recipients
  • Stories of connection with students, for students, and by students
  • Vice-Chancellor’s Innovation in Teaching Award winning video applications
  • Compilation of comic snippets from online topic recordings and meetings (‘Cats, Dogs and Epic Fails’)
  • WIL online
  • … and more.

Anna Smith in CILT is now calling for submissions of online teaching and learning stories, connections, experiences, successes, and failures.

If conversion to online delivery was a minefield potted with hilarious Collaborate sessions, fumbled Teams discussions or Kaltura miss-takes, now is your time to shine! If you got innovative with the conversion and designed an online topic with creativity and a twist, share your story!

Contact Anna today with your ideas and let us turn them into a shared and celebrated artefact to be displayed throughout November.
