The First Year Engineering Course and Career Advice Day will be held at the University Club on Thursday 23rd April. Students will have the opportunity to talk with engineers from industry on industry expectations and career options, talk with students from the University Engineers Club and UWA Young Engineers, and find out about what scholarships are available.
UWA is supporting a substantial investigation into ways that sessional teaching staff at UWA can be better supported in their teaching. This undertaking is being conducted by the CATLyst Network (a group of faculty representatives whose role is to promote and enhance quality teaching across the university). As a crucial first step in this project, input from sessional staff members across the university is being sought through an online survey.
Expressions of Interest are sought for the Semester 1, 2009 round of Improving Student Learning (ISL) Grants. The ISL Grants program provides small grants to encourage teachers to make practical and innovative changes to their units in order to improve current practice. There are no strict guidelines on what ‘changes’ might qualify, although the proposal must fall within the aims of the grants program and will ideally represent an inventive approach to teaching, with positive and identifiable impacts for student learning.
The Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics was pleased to announce the recipients of its 2008 Teaching and Learning Awards at a ceremony held at The University Club on Tuesday, 10th March 2009.
This semester, for the first time, the University held its Orientation programme over two weeks instead of the usual one week. The extra time provided the Faculties an opportunity to host more activites to help our commencing students settle in to University life.
