Project: A national learning and teaching induction program
Contemporary approaches to university teaching – a teaching induction MOOC
The free teaching induction MOOC, Contemporary approaches to university teaching, provides key introductory learning and teaching concepts and strategies for those in their first few years of university teaching (https://www.canvas.net/browse/swinburne/courses/contemporary-approaches-university-teaching). The self-paced MOOC is comprised of 11 expert-developed modules and several specialty modules and resources. Participants are encouraged to engage with the MOOC for two hours a week across the semester. However, the MOOC can be used as a just in time, just for me resource and used as and when needed. Topics include Planning for learning, Supporting online learning, Feedback for learning, Curriculum design etc.
Institutions providing learning and teaching professional development can learn how other universities are using the MOOC in the ‘How universities are using the MOOC’ section on the Fellowship website. https://caullt.edu.au/project-resources/olt-fellowship-and-mooc-available/
