TILT News - Upcoming workshops of interest to University teachers
Exploring Student Lifeworlds and their Impact on Accounting Education
The Accounting and Corporate Governance Seminar Series welcome Associate Professor Nicholas McGuigan, Monash University, who will be presenting a seminar:
Uncovering Student Worlds: Exploring Student Lifeworlds and their Impact on Accounting Education
- Friday 7 April, 2017, 12:00pm - 1:00pm AEST
- Sandy Bay Campus - Centenary Room 405; videolinked to Newnham D131 and Cradle Coast CCA 119
- to register, please email Dr Claire Horner, Tasmanian School of Business and Economics.
Associate Professor McGuigan's presentation will draw from a recent paper, CreActive Accounting Education: Visioning Future-Oriented Accounting Programs through a Reflective Unlearning of Current Practice, in which he and co-author, Thomas Kern, discuss how tertiary educators might respond to the "increasingly complex and unpredictable" job market and employment situations in which our graduates will find themselves.
Learning and Teaching
We work with staff individually and in teams to ensure the quality design and delivery of our units and courses. We offer both formal and informal support for quality enhancements and assurance, including the Bachelor of Education with Professional Honours (Higher Education).
We provide self-paced resources designed to support you with your teaching practice, new unit and course design, application for awards, grants and fellowships, and more. These resources are available from our websites and MyLO sites.
Awards, Grants and Fellowships
We provide dedicated support for the development of applications for institutional and national Awards, Grants and Fellowships.
Higher Education Academy Fellowships
We now offer accredited pathways to being recognised as an Associate Fellow, Fellow, Senior Fellow or Principle Fellow of the HEA. This international recognition of your teaching and learning practice is aligned with the TPEs, and is being increasingly taken up across Australian Institutions.
We offer workshops addressing a wide range of information and skills related to the provision of quality learning and teaching in Higher Education. These workshops are presented by leaders in the field from around Australia, in addition to our dedicated staff here at UTAS.
Every year the Tasmanian Institute of Learning and Teaching hosts an internal conference that offers UTAS staff the opportunity to showcase their teaching practice.
