Posts Tagged ‘integrating teaching and research’

I was an invited speaker at Professor Angela Brew’s National Summit, Undergraduate Research in Australia: First Australian Summit on the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (ALTC Senior Fellow), 5th-6th November, 2009, Bondi Beach, Sydney, Australia. My presentation was titled “Research informed Media Practice”.

A few weeks earlier I had presented on the topic “Strengthening the link between research and practice in the first-year media arts curriculum” at Professor Angela Brew’s Australian Learning and Teaching Council National Teaching Fellowship Roundtable at Macquarie University on the 23rd September.

This was one of a series of Regional Roundtables to be held as part of Professor Angela Brew’s ALTC National Teaching Fellowship and it formed part of Macquarie University’s Learning and Teaching Week.

Speakers  included Fellowship team members, and academics and students with experience of undergraduate research. The event included a Learning Café to facilitate discussion and sharing of participants’ own experiences, ideas and resources, as well as artifacts and protocols being produced as part of the National Teaching Fellowship.

I also convened the South Australian regional roundtable held in Adelaide on the 10th November and co-presented with Dr Sheila Scutter on the topic of integrating research and teaching in the undergraduate curriculum within the disciplinary fields of Health Sciences and Communications.

I will post a link to my presentations once  they are available via Professor Brew’s website.
