Centre for Teaching and Learning
Southern Cross University is committed to providing educational opportunities for our diverse student body, in particular those from rural and regional communities. We aim to deliver inspirational teaching, innovative research and high quality and dynamic learning experiences to equip our students to be tomorrow's leaders, to live a life they value and be effective global citizens.
We work side by side with academic staff and students to implement the University's strategic directions through three teams of staff:
Academic Skills – Support for students, Academic Practrice – Support for staff and Digital Resources – Support for staff
The Academic Practice team supports strategies that focus on design for student learning and assessment, teaching evaluation and the scholarship of teaching in diverse learning spaces at Southern Cross University.
The Academic Skills team supports students' development of self-management, language, learning and critical thinking skills as well as the development of academic literacy, numeracy and integrity.
Digital Resources supports the design and development of quality student learning materials and resources, creative media production and the use of the Southern Cross University's online learning technologies.
The Foundations of University Teaching Practice is a new, flexible professional learning opportunity designed to improve teaching and learning practices, enhance the learning experiences of our students, and fit into staff's busy career's.
