Academic Development Unit
The principal role of TLC’s Academic Development Unit is to provide central leadership in and support for the development and enhancement of teaching and learning across the University. Through assisting individual academics, discipline groups, Schools and Faculties to address their academic development needs, we support the implementation of University teaching and learning priorities, policies and strategic directions.
The Academic Development Unit works to fulfil its role within the framework of supporting the development of:
a scholarly approach to teaching and learning through proactive and collaborative research, workshop programs, and group and individual development projects
- high-quality course and unit development and delivery, with an emphasis on exploring and facilitating the choice and optimum use of appropriate technologies.
Research experience and expertise in the Academic Development Unit includes engagement with teaching and learning issues associated with the scholarship of teaching and learning and student support in general, with a current focus on such areas of investigation as internationalisation, accessibility, graduate attributes, media development for teaching with technology, the student experience, assessment practices, academic professional development and developing academic leadership.
