Recognise, inspire, and shape academic development practice

6th November : QUT Brisbane Australia

Program

 

Academic Development focuses on good practice and enhancing practice for all the dimensions of teaching, learning and scholarship. Academic development aims to develop teaching, curriculum, and leadership of teaching so as to, in turn, support high quality student learning. Higher education staff who support academic development may be referred to as academic, educational, or professional developers. [Mårtensson, K., 2014]


The Advancing Academic Development project set out to establish how we might effectively support Academic Developers (ADs) to build their capabilities, establish national networks, and share good practices. Alongside research into the needs and views of ADs, and what senior university leaders may support, in 2018 a national professional development event was convened to test and evaluate a new facilitated model. Proving to be highly successful, a second event is now planned for 2019.


The 2019 Advancing Academic Development Event will feature keynote speakers, professional development workshops, and presentations on innovative academic development practice across Australasian institutions. It will again culminate in the presentation of the 2019 Australasian Academic Development Good Practice Awards.
