Workshops held on November 29:
Hobart December 5, 14:00-15:30
Venue Flexible Learning Space, University Centre
This workshop is for staff who seek to deliver a positive student experience in their teaching while maintaining and enhancing their research activities.
'Smart teaching' is a blanket term describing a coordinated set of initiatives designed to transform teaching cultures and re-organise teaching activities to meet the demands of the current moment. The types of initiatives involved are designed to foster a more robust and reflective teaching culture focused on continued improvement and upgrading. At the same time, they should enhance the capacity for staff participation in research activities by building a teaching culture less dependent upon current time-intensive and labour-intensive practices. The focus is on practical steps and strategies staff can readily implement.
The workshop will be of particular interest to early career academics and others interested in resolving the 'squeeze' between teaching and research.
Presented by Maryanne Dever.
Maryanne Dever joined the University of Newcastle in 2010 as an Associate Professor in the School of Humanities and Social Science. Prior to this she was Director of the Centre for Women's Studies and Gender Research at Monash University. She has also held appointments at the University of Hong Kong and the University of Sydney. Her publications on aspects of teaching and research practice in higher education have appeared in such journals as Tertiary Education and Management, The European Journal of Women's Studies, Feminist Teacher, Women's Studies Quarterly, and Legal Education Review.

This is a two-part forum for anyone interested in sustainability education. The Forum will take place as a series of professional conversations with Monash University colleagues in sustainability education led by Assoc Prof Alan Reid, Editor of Environmental Education Research Journal.
Forum 1A: Sustainability Education and Teacher Education
This forum provides opportunity for conversations about how we might best prepare our teacher graduates to not only fulfil the requirements presented by the national curriculum, but also contribute meaningfully to a more sustainable future through education.
Forum 1B: Sustainability Education and Higher Education
This forum is an interdisciplinary conversation about the place of Education for Sustainability (EfS) in higher education, with particular focus on the ways that sustainability might be envisioned, conceptualised, and advanced within an inter(trans)-disciplinary paradigm.
Places are strictly limited so please register early. Please see the invitation for further details.
