Recognise, Reflect, Respond: a multi-campus Arts & Humanities colloquium
26th November 2021
The disciplines of the emerging Faculty of Arts and Humanities wish to best recognise practice in online learning due to the pandemic, take time to reflect on the experience, and respond in the context of a Colloquium, to inform strategic planning for teaching and learning across the Faculty.
For lecturers and students alike, online learning and teaching has been a new endeavour. Previous data show that both learners and lecturers want more online approaches to learning and teaching, but post-pandemic data highlight diminished student enjoyment and engagement in the online pandemic learning experience.
This colloquium seeks to bring teaching, teaching support staff, and learners together to share experiences within the context of Arts and Humanities. We will hear about the lived experience of online pandemic learning from student and lecturer perspectives. This event supports a response to further the future teaching and learning vision and mission of the emerging faculty.
Focus of the event
- Strategic institutional discussions about the place of teaching and learning within local policy and decision-making and how the value of teaching and learning can be strengthened
- Sharing and valuing ongoing teaching and learning enhancement work
- Gathering views and experiences from those who learn, teach and/or lead on the shift to online/remote learning and considering what has been learned for the future about how teaching and learning can/should be valued
- Considering the place of teaching and learning in evolving institutional contexts, e.g., in the context of institutional mergers
- Leveraging partnerships between those who teach and their students, as well as the wider educational community, to foster collective advocacy in strengthening the value placed on teaching and learning
