The theme of Teaching Matters 2012 is Sustaining Futures: Considering sustainability across the learning and teaching divide.
A key task for Teaching Matters 2012 is to address the interwoven challenges associated with ideas about sustainability, specifically within the learning and teaching context. In doing so, we will be inviting University of Tasmania staff to submit abstracts for presentations on how these challenges have been, or are being, addressed in practice. Presentations must be linked to at least one of the four sub-themes. These are:
Submissions for showcase presentations, 'Pecha Kucha' and posters are now open.
Submission of showcase presentations, 'Pecha Kucha' and poster proposals are due Tuesday 2nd October 2012.
Please see the Submissions and key dates page for further details.
Teaching Matters will be held at the School of Architecture and Design, Inveresk Campus, Launceston.
Teaching Matters is the major showcase for learning and teaching at the University of Tasmania. This annual conference began in 2002 and provides an excellent opportunity to discuss teaching practice, recognise success in teaching and learning, showcase innovations and engender enthusiasm for excellence in learning and teaching.
It also provides a relaxed atmosphere with opportunities for participants to move between a variety of sessions, talk to presenters, and build networks with colleagues. Teaching Matters is open to all academic and professional staff interested in learning and teaching.
