A free, self-paced teaching induction course for the Australian context which includes content developed by Macquarie University staff.

University teaching is a complex task. When we first start to teach, nothing is automatic. Everything has to be carefully thought through. This MOOC introduces new teachers to key learning and teaching concepts and strategies in easily studied, two hour modules – just in time, just for you. Modules cover topics like strategies to teach that first class, giving feedback, facilitating group work, and online teaching.

Course starts 8th February

Participants are encouraged to engage with the MOOC for two hours a week during Session 1 (February 8th – June 21). However, the MOOC can also be used as a just in time, just for you resource and used as and when needed.

The course has been developed by a team of colleagues from 20 Australian universities and one university in the United Kingdom. It was established by National Teaching Fellow Associate Professor Kym Fraser, and is co-led by Associate Professor Agnes Bosanquet (Macquarie University) and Associate Professor Marina Harvey.

This course is offered by CAULLT – Council of Australasian University Leaders in Learning and Teaching.
