Effective teaching is a central aspect of an academic career at UWA. This workshop will focus on the criteria and evidence that can be included in a teaching portfolio and used for PDR (Professional Development Review) and promotion. You will leave this session confident and eager to make a start on your own portfolio.
When we think about team teaching we start to ask questions like: how would you do this; and, if you did, why would you do it? This workshop addresses these questions by providing an opportunity to learn about various team teaching approaches as ways of making the teaching and learning environment in a higher education context more learner-centred, efficient and fun.
Teaching in the laboratory or workshop setting can often become a routine process that does not take full advantage of the opportunities to improve student learning. This workshop will introduce you to strategies to enhance student engagement and communication between teacher and students, making the experience enjoyable and productive for all.
