Registration is now open to ACU academic staff for the Teaching Support Program (TSP) in Semester 2 2016. This program is a Learning for Life initiative that supports staff in developing capabilities in designing and planning quality learning experiences for students across a range of delivery modes, particularly in LEO and online modes.
The fundamental premise supporting the TSP is that time allocated to unit design and planning is reflected in the quality of the teaching and the learning experience for the student. Starting with the ‘design backward; deliver forward’ curriculum / unit design model, a core element of the TSP is to offer a process, using practical tools, to bridge the Unit Outline with the planning and design of the LEO unit.
Another core element of the program focuses on the why and how of Active Learning, and provides a template, based on good practice models, that teaching staff can use as a guide when designing learning activities.
Lastly, the TSP explores various technology-enhanced learning approaches to match teaching strategies with the appropriate digital tool for use in online learning and teaching or F2F teaching environments.
The program runs for seven weekly sessions starting on 9 August 2016 at 2pm and is offered as a live classroom using Adobe Connect so staff from all campuses can attend.
The TSP is an ACU endorsed staff development activity and will be recognised as part of your professional development.
