The free teaching induction MOOC Contemporary approaches to university teaching, has opened for second semester. This self-paced online MOOC, developed as part of an OLT Fellowship project, provides an introduction to key learning and teaching concepts and strategies for those in their first few years of university teaching.
Comprising 11 expert-developed modules and several specialty modules and resources (including one developed by Agnes Bosanquet and Cathy Rytmeister at Macquarie), participants are encouraged to engage with the course for two hours a week across a semester. However, this course can also be used as a just in time, just for me resource, to be used as and when needed. Topics include Planning for learning, Supporting online learning, Feedback for learning, and Curriculum design. For more information or to register for second semester, see the promotional flyer.
