University Learning and Teaching Futures Colloquium
The University of New England, located in the beautiful northern tablelands city of Armidale, New South Wales, is delighted to host the inaugural University Learning and Teaching Futures (ULT-Futures) Colloquium in Armidale, NSW, Australia.
The colloquium theme is: Rethinking learning in your discipline
The colloquium will focus on the scholarship of learning and teaching, specifically the diversity of excellent teaching practices and the student learning experience across disciplines. It will provide an excellent opportunity to disseminate findings from Australian Learning and Teaching funded projects.
The colloquium will be held on the campus of the University of New England (Education Building (E007) - See Campus map)
Who should attend
The colloquium is directed at academic and general staff involved in teaching in higher education.
Participants at all stages of development in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) are encouraged to present.
What you will get out of attending
Rich feedback in the colloquium’s collegial environment will assist you in exploring research possibilities or taking your work to the next stage. You may leave with a better developed research idea or project, or contacts for collaborative SoTL research. You may be ready to continue developing your short paper for publication, or polishing your long paper for the colloquium proceedings.
You will have plenty of opportunity to meet and talk with others about teaching and learning issues relevant to your discipline.
To broaden the richness of the experience an online space for Colloquium delegates and authors is being created. This private space will contain the full text of all papers in their current form, and all workshop and roundtable working papers. Access will be limited to authors and delegates, who may make comments and ask questions prior to, during, or after the Colloquium. Access will be provided with confirmation of registration.
Wireless internet will be available to all delegates during the Colloquium.
Presentations in the form of refereed, non-refereed, and show and tell papers, roundtables, workshops or posters are invited which particularly examine an application of the scholarship or teaching and learning to discipline-based issues. See the colloquium themes for more detail.
