The CMPH Learning and Teaching Academy invites you to…

Open Classrooms provide an opportunity to observe ‘teaching in action’ and approaches to successful teaching in different settings. You’re invited to attend, observe and participate in a short informal discussion with the educator after the teaching session to unpack the approaches used and why. Suitable for novice through to experienced educators.

Those of us who are involved in education often have questions about our teaching and learning practices. For example, how do students learn in a particular context? How do they put knowledge into practice? What are the impacts of specific teaching or assessment approaches?

Asking and seeking to answer such questions forms the basis of what we refer to as the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). SoTL can take many different forms and includes undertaking research in education.

In this workshop, we provide a practical introduction to educational research within a health context. This interactive session will also feature a panel discussion with members of the CMPH community who are currently undertaking (or have recently undertaken) educational research in different teaching programs and contexts.

This is part 1 of a two-part workshop that will cover the processes and skills required for undertaking the role of a peer evaluator for peer evaluation of teaching at Flinders University. Both parts 1 and part 2 will need to be completed.

We will cover values in peer evaluation, the peer evaluation process, roles and responsibilities as a peer evaluator, resources available and the art of the peer evaluation conversation.  Opportunities to undertake your own peer evaluation of teaching will be provided between Parts 1 and 2.
