Natalie Spence was recently awarded a highly commended certificate by student vote for her poster on presentation skills at Macquarie University’s 2015 Learning and Teaching Week.
Congratulations: Meghan Hughes, Daniel Tran, Matthew Burke and Lauren Gorfinkel.
They each won a $100 Co-op book voucher for completing a survey on work-based learning, part of the ISP-funded Matchmaking Project Study, investigating the development of a framework for cross-Institutional collaboration in professional practice and research involving work-based learning approaches (See Call to Contribute).
How do your students stay in touch with developments in their future professions while they are studying? How do they make those important connections with other academics and professionals working in their chosen field? Embedding social media into your learning design can help with this, and much more.
What concerns Macquarie academics about how students are using social media in class or for learning? Which discipline areas are currently using social media in teaching at Macquarie? (hint: it’s not necessarily the ones you might expect!)
Find out the answers to these questions and more at the forthcoming seminar on Integrating Social Media into Learning and Teaching.
The long-toothed amongst us will remember that, before the term ‘poster’ was an agent noun referring to someone who posts stuff on social media (angry or otherwise), the term was a regular ol’ noun, denoting some largish paper with a bit of a message.
