UWA’s recent Teaching Excellence Conference and Showcase focused on building sustainability goals into the student experience, developing an employability framework and developing outcomes-based research learning in our curriculum.

Over 140 colleagues from various faculties, departments and centres joined our distinguished guest speakers for two full days of professional development, sharing of ideas and celebrating a successful year of learning and teaching at UWA.

The showcase poster presentation featured submissions from a number of our Flipped Classroom Grant recipients, our Communities of Practice teams and other key areas of the University. The poster presentations will be featured in an Educational Enhancement Unit publication due for release in January 2020.

We are delighted to share our guest speakers’ presentation slides from the two-day event.
