Professional development opportunities: Developing Effective Teaching (DEfT) workshops

As part of UC’s strategic focus on professional development in teaching, Academic Development, E-Learning Support and the Student Support units will be starting a series of short (90 minute) workshops from February aimed at teaching staff.

These workshops will cover commonly encountered teaching issues and dovetail with existing professional development offerings through HR Learning & Development. Topics include, among others, engaging students in class, authentic assessment, online design and content development and writing learning outcomes.

An initial list of the new workshops can be found here, and you can register your interest for a workshop date and time. More workshops on different topics will be added over the course of 2020.

For queries, contact Erik Brogt (Academic Development) or Nick Ford (E-Learning Support)

We have all seen the Emergency Procedures Flipcharts around, but how many of us have actually read these?

Each week we will look at a page from the flip chart in order to become more familiar with its contents.

Food for Thought | Day One – Associate Professor Peter Field

‘Food for Thought’ is a five-day series of 15-minute talks in Ōtautahi Christchurch so people can feed their minds while filling their tummies. Did you catch the story about it on Stuff?

Aimed at bringing the best of UC to the city, every day at midday from 9 – 13 December UC academics will be down at Riverside Market to cover a wide variety of exciting topics, from space to nutrition and mental wellbeing. See the full timetable of upcoming events throughout the week on UC Facebook>

Yesterday’s speaker was Associate Professor Peter Field, who gave an engaging talk about higher education in the age of the smartphone.

TuneSoc provided music entertainment afterwards to end what was an interesting, funny and engaging way to engage with our audience in the city.

Keep up to date with the next ones throughout the week on UC Facebook, or head down and have yourself an informative lunch!
