Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

Traditionally, data relating to the conduct of subjects at the University of Wollongong has been collected for academics with one main purpose in mind: to provide the academic with supporting information as to their teaching ability for the purposes of promotion. Currently this data is collected using ‘prescribed Teaching Surveys’.

Learning About Tertiary Teaching: Placing The Lecturer At The Centre Of The Learning Experience, Maureen E. Bell

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

The attributes of effective university teachers are well documented (Ramsden, 1992). If universities wish to improve learning and teaching they need to provide academic staff with programs through which these attributes can be developed. A wide variety of courses now exist in Australian Universities that aim to develop academic staff as effective teachers (Martin & Ramsden, 1994). Some focus on developing skills through workshops and study packages, others on developing conceptions of teaching at a theoretical level or through reflective practice.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) - Papers

As universities globally move toward the flexible delivery of subjects and courses, the issue of how students learn from these modes is increasingly important for the design of these subjects. Using an action learning approach, this paper will show that this integration of learning skills into subject curriculum results in significant improvements in students’ skills levels. The main focus of the paper is to show that the conversion of subjects into flexible delivery allows a deeper level of integration of tertiary literacy instruction than is possible in campus based subjects. To explore this, the paper will present a case-study on ...

One of the difficulties faced by many academics in their teaching is the evaluation of the teaching and learning process. The growing importance of this aspect of tertiary education has been picked up in recent years by Government in its push for quality assurance in the sector. If quality is most effectively ensured by those directly involved in the provision of a service, then tools, mechanisms and processes need to be provided so that this involvement can be facilitated. The need for evaluation of the success of teaching and learning has become even more critical as more and more in ...
