The University of Western Australia has launched its fifth annual Teaching and Learning Month when staff and students come together to celebrate their teaching and learning success and discuss future improvements.
UWA Vice-Chancellor Professor Alan Robson said this year's theme, Teaching in Times of Change, was particularly appropriate as the University moved towards designing and implementing its New Courses 2012.
"This is an exciting time as the University takes the opportunity to reinvigorate undergraduate courses, unit structure and content and the ways in which they are taught and assessed. The events of Teaching and Learning Month provide a chance to focus on the broader issues of teaching and learning related to our new courses," Professor Robson said.
Teaching and Learning Month highlights include University Teaching Awards, to be announced tomorrow, Wednesday, May 5, and a Hypothetical, Teaching in Times of Change, to be moderated by Canon Reverend Richard Pengelley, to be held on Friday, May 7.
