For our first Learning and Teaching Exchange (LTX) event of 2017, we launch ‘Students as Partners’ – a series that will run throughout this year. A key strategy initiative in Connected Experiences of the Learning and Teaching Strategic Framework calls us to ‘promote students as partners and co-creators in their formal learning’.

In this LTX we will hear from a panel of student representatives in FBE that deliver feedback in their faculty, at the unit and department level on student experience and engagement – from group-work to teaching. There will also be an opportunity, in the second half of the event, to engage with the panel, so please bring along any burning questions you might have to do with student representation, and its potential in program development and student experience.

A Learning and Teaching Exchange (LTX) is a chance to connect with colleagues to open conversations about new ideas and strategic initiatives in learning and teaching, and practical ways to implement them. LTXs are a free exchange of ideas aimed at promoting communications across the learning and teaching community at Macquarie. The events are primarily aimed at teaching staff looking for practical ideas that are applicable in their own practice, or different ways to approach new strategic directions. Presenters are mostly practitioners who are implementing these new ideas, along with key champions within the community. We encourage a diversity of presenters, try to involve students as much as possible and involve external speakers from time to time. If you have ideas for an LTX, please contact geraldine.timmins@mq.edu.au.
