PDF SCU Scholarship of Teaching Symposium 2017 Program

The Centre for Teaching and Learning invite all staff to join us for our 2017 Scholarship of Teaching Symposium. The Symposium presents an opportunity for you to share your scholarly approach to teaching and network with peers who are also taking a scholarly approach to their teaching.

The theme for this year's Symposium, Transformation and Change, encompasses the wide range of work and practices undertaken in teaching and learning. It provides an opportunity to share our problems, our challenges and solutions, our scholarly initiatives, and our reflective practice.

Our keynote presenter is Associate Professor Phillip Dawson, presenting:

Assessment: Myths, evidence and possibilities
Phill will also be leading two post-Symposium workshops on Thursday 12 October at the Gold Coast campus on Designing assessment with the Assessment Design Decisions framework and Designing better feedback processes.

Further details and a registration link are available at the Visiting Scholar webpage, or in the PDF Visit flyer - Associate Professor Phillip Dawson.


Showcase and Spotlight presentations, Roundtables and Posters will feature on the day's program.
The program will be available from Friday 22 September, 2017.


Three awards are available, two decided by the Symposium Steering Group (Panel's Choice) and one by People's Choice.

Most thought-provoking contribution (Panel's Choice) - Open to all submissions for presentations, this award will be based on the review criteria with the addition of relevance to teaching and learning practice at SCU. Short-listed contributions will be presented during the afternoon plenary.

Best Poster (Panel's Choice) - This award will be based on the review criteria with the addition of quality of design. It will be decided at the Symposium by the Symposium Steering Group.

Best presentation (People's Choice) - This award will be decided by popular votes cast at the Symposium for posters and presentations.
