Helpful links to get you started
Welcome to SCU
Welcome to the SCU teaching and learning community. We know starting at an institution can be daunting and confusing and it can be hard to find your way around. We have compiled a list of handy links to help you get to know SCU, orient yourself, and find the support systems, people and structures and more, that will frame your working life at SCU.
Support services relevant to teaching and learning
The Centre for Teaching and Learning is here to directly support effective teaching at SCU. Here are links of supports that are available to help you develop and enhance your teaching practice and work with students.
This two-hour hands-on workshop is designed for you as a new teacher at SCU, to familiarise you with the available teaching practice support services. Teaching can be daunting so we've put together a workshop to ease the load.The workshop includes:
1. An introduction to teaching at SCU with opportunities to:
engage in discussion about teaching and learning issues
participate in hands-on activities
network with colleagues from different disciplines
2. Learning resources available prior to the workshop, to familiarise you with the available support services.
This is a new, flexible professional learning opportunity designed to improve your teaching and learning practice, enhance the learning experiences of your students, and fit in your busy career.
All new SCU staff within their first three years of teaching are invited to enrol in the Foundations of University Teaching Practice (FUTP) program offered by the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL). This program will also be of interest to experienced staff seeking fresh inspiration, particularly in relation to teaching in the online environment.
