Help shape the future of learning at Flinders

All staff are invited to take part in the Flinders Learning Experience Conversation by Professor Romy Lawson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Students), to help shape what learning at Flinders should look like in the future.

The process will examine how to build and enhance delivery of University curriculum, and how to create a point of difference for Flinders University. The aim of this broad conversation is to develop an agreed model and principles that align with University’s strategic aims, which can then be nuanced to suit specific courses and disciplines.

Conversations held over the next 12 weeks will initially focus on four themes, and these may alter as the discussion develops:
