Faculty Learning and Teaching teams have been working in partnership with the Learning Innovation Hub to redesign our foundational learning and teaching professional development programs (TIP and FiLT). These programs will be delivered in blended mode, with both central common components and faculty-specific requirements.
Registrations are open now for the Foundations in Learning and Teaching (FiLT) program! FiLT will be presented in mainly online mode over 16 weeks, complemented by an initial face-to-face meeting on Wednesday 17 February.
I’ve observed in several previous posts that the unit convenor role is vitally important to the quality of our teaching and curriculum and yet poorly recognised and often under-valued, and largely seen as an administrative service role. I’ve argued that unit administration, while necessary, is not where convenors have the greatest opportunity to contribute to excellence in teaching and curriculum at Macquarie. Unit convenors are also in a position to provide vital leadership with respect to curriculum and teaching, the latter especially so in large units with many tutors.
