Gen AI for Development and Delivery Workshop

Presenter: Dr Chris Lawler, Faculty of Business, Law and Arts

Generative AI as an academic authoring tool – signposting potholes and how to elevate outputs. In this one-hour session, Chris Lawler will share her principles developed while course writing and as a Unit Assessor providing feedback to students.

The use of cutting-edge technologies like generative AI (LLMs) has the power to significantly enhance the quality and efficiency of course development and delivery.

Supporting staff-student-GenAI interactions in learning and teaching

Presenters:
Dr Jo Munn, Centre for Teaching and Learning
Ms Jenny Luethi, SCU Library

Frameworks, approaches and resources to support staff-student-GenAI interactions in learning and teaching at SCU. This session is co-presented by CTL and SCU library and will showcase resources and approaches to target the development of student AI literacies for effective and responsible use of GenAI. We also encourage colleagues to contribute by sharing their teaching practice with brief examples of learning activities (online or in class) where they are encouraging students to use GenAI tools.

Teaching critical GenAI literacies: Redesigning a unit with the theme of GenAI

Presenter: Dr Grant Andrews, SCU College

This presentation discusses a case study of a foundation academic literacies unit that was redesigned to focus on the theme of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) like ChatGPT in various disciplines, as well as exploring the use of GenAI in education. The unit included multiple activities and assessments that focused on how to critically work with generated texts without compromising one’s own learning or skills development. I consider the challenges and affordances of the approach and offer some preliminary thoughts on the impact that this has had on academic integrity, students achieving learning outcomes, and how students are able to evaluate GenAI texts in their academic writing.

Introduction to SoLT: What, why, how?

Presenter: Dr Liz Goode, Office of the PVC (Academic Quality)  

The scholarship of learning and teaching (SoLT – aka SoTL) is an important, but sometimes unclear, domain of academic work (Felten, 2013; Godbold et al., 2024; Trigwell et al., 2000).

What is SoLT exactly, and specifically what is considered SoLT within our context at SCU? Why should we do SoLT? How can we do SoLT in ways that are valued and recognised? This webinar provides a foundation for addressing these questions – and for engaging in reflective, systematic and quality SoLT that enriches our professional practice and benefits both learning and teaching.

Embarking on SoLT publishing: Building a strong foundation workshop

Presenter: Dr Liz Goode, Office of the PVC (Academic Quality) and Dr Johanna Nieuwoudt, SCU College

In an earlier CTL Workshop (10 April 2024), we learned that the scholarship of learning and teaching (SoLT) involves systematic inquiry into learning and teaching and "going public" with our insights. Publishing SoLT work - in pre-prints and journals, and at symposia and conferences - is one of the key ways we can do this.

In this workshop, we will introduce participants to SoLT publishing. With a focus on the Australian higher education sector we will discuss: What does the landscape of SoLT publishing look like? What are some entry points for getting started on a project? What are some of the foundations of a rigorous and publishable SoLT project?

The discussion will involve scholars at all levels of SoLT experience - from totally new, to years of publishing experience with SoLT projects. You will be able to hear stories, ask questions, and build an individual and collective sense of the possibilities and challenges of SoLT publishing. Join us to kickstart your journey!

Feature your SoLT in Cross Connect Workshop 1

Presenters: Margie Pembroke, SCU Library, Maureen Bezanson, SCU Library, Dr Mieke Witsel, CTL

This workshop will enable you to feature your Learning and Teaching achievements and activities with SCU’s Cross Connect

Cross Connect is the institutional repository of Southern Cross University, spotlighting our academic experts, research, scholarly publications, projects, and activities. Embracing various intellectual, creative, and cultural outputs, including Open Access research and Scholarship of Learning and Teaching (SoLT) endeavours, Cross Connect stands as a testament to our institution’s commitment to scholarly dissemination. 

In this workshop, we equip participants with the skills to feature their learning and teaching accomplishments and activities on the Cross Connect platform, amplifying their professional profiles. Hands-on training will teach you to input your achievements and appropriately tag them as “Scholarship of Learning and Teaching” (SoLT). 

Audience the event was aimed at: All SCU academics and staff involved in the scholarship of learning and teaching.

Introduction to implementation of Universal Design for Learning in a university setting workshop

Presenter: Associate Professor Andy Smidt, Faculty of Health

This workshop will introduce UDL for those who are new to this area. Universal Design for Learning is an approach to curriculum design based on designing accessible content for all students not just those with a disability. It is, however relatively underused in the higher education sector. A recent Australian scoping review (Jwad et al., 2022) recommended that, in Australian universities, training in UDL should be a requirement for instructors involved in course design tailored to the institution. A/Prof Andy Smidt is new to SCU and brings with her, significant expertise at implementing UDL in university settings. Andy is part of the leadership team of UDLHE and is chair of Digicon. In this introductory session, participants will learn about the benefits and challenges of curriculum design for inclusivity with time to discuss how this might work in the Southern Cross.
