How do you choose which technology is best to help you with assessments?
What tools do you use to communicate with your students?
Where do you go for training and information on designing interactive lectures?
Over 90% of students who trialled Team-Based Learning (TBL) in the Bachelor of Clinical Science stated that the TBL format motivated them to prepare for tutorials, provided an effective way to apply their learning, helped them develop their synthesising skills and took their learning a step further than they expected. Totally bodacious one could say.

What do we mean when we talk about ethics? Is it behaviour towards others, rules and regulations, professional codes of conduct or is it regulatory guidelines for areas of specialisation, such as research involving people or animals? In higher education it is all these things and more. There are a range of approaches to teaching ethics. While the University’s regulatory framework for ethics is comprehensive and readily accessible, PACE unit convenors have also identified the need for a suite of resources that cover the more nebulous area of ethical practice in pedagogy and workplace contexts. As a result, PACE have developed a set of resources that can be utilised by unit convenors to support students going on a range of activities, be they local, international or on campus.
