Enrolments for the free 2019 Contemporary Approaches to University Teaching MOOC are now open at https://www.canvas.net/browse/swinburne/courses/contemporary-approaches-university-teaching. This course will run until 23 June, with enrolments open until 7 June.

Contemporary approaches to university teaching provides key introductory learning and teaching concepts and strategies for those in their first few years of university teaching. The self-paced MOOC is comprised of 11 expert-developed modules and several specialty modules and resources.

Includes a specialty module on the Politics of Higher Education developed at Macquarie by Agnes Bosanquet (FHS) and Cathy Rytmeister (LIH).

In 2018, 1,851 staff from 50 countries enrolled in the Contemporary Approaches to University Teaching MOOC. One Australian college, 15 Australian and two New Zealand universities are using the MOOC, as well as the Malaysian campus of one of the Australian universities. Ten of the Australian universities have imported the MOOC and have or will shortly customise the MOOC to suit their institution’s context. To see how other universities are using the MOOC, visit the ‘How universities are using the MOOC’ section on the Fellowship website https://www.caullt.edu.au/project-resources/olt-fellowship-and-mooc-available/
