This is the second of two workshops in the Celebrating Teaching Excellence series. The focus of this seminar series is upon increasing your understanding of the process gaining recognition for your teaching practice. The new Teaching Performance Expectations era creates opportunities to reflect on which particular aspects of our performance as educators can be used to advance our standing at UTAS and/or nationally/internationally.

Increasing numbers of academics world-wide are migrating as higher education institutions internationalise. The tangible benefits of the internationalisation of higher education are manifold. However, a wealth of literature has highlighted that transition between cultures – including when it is voluntary – is characteristically challenging. Furthermore, academics’ experiences of cross-cultural transition remain under-explored, especially in comparison with students. This is of some concern in the Australian context given that Australia has been identified as among the top destinations for “migrating academics” over the last three decades and that the Review of Higher Education identified that in 2006 over 40 per cent of Australian academic staff were born outside Australia.

The workshop is designed for those who need to publish and/or are in the process of writing a paper. Topics will include how to find journals to publish your work and understanding the requirements. There will be time for critical review and it is encouraged for participants to bring along their work in progress.

Presenting research at conferences and seminars is an integral part of an academic’s career. Papers can be requested in different formats ranging from abstracts, workshops, lectures, lunchtime provocations and round table discussions. The workshop will focus on how to write a conference abstract, what needs to be included and the difference between a short, medium and an extended abstract which is usually over one thousand words. Samples of conference abstracts will be discussed and there will be time for writing and review.

Presented by Dr Kerry Howells, this workshop explores how we can engage students more fully in their learning. It introduces pedagogy that enhances the relational aspects of teaching and contributes to transformative learning. It offers a conceptual framework for the place of the practice of gratitude in higher education that is aligned with educational rather than therapeutic goals. Examples will be given of gratitude practices and outcomes reported from the application of pedagogy of gratitude a variety of educational contexts. The conceptual framework underlying this approach gives precedence to expressed gratitude in the form of ‘gratitude practices’, rather than prescribing a certain way of thinking or feeling, or recommending that one should aim to feel grateful all the time. The workshop also takes into account some of dilemmas that arise when considering the role of gratitude in the complex terrain of university education. Participants will leave the workshop with strategies they can implement in their teaching practice and a wider framework from which to consider student disengagement.

Presenting at a conference involves both skill and preparation. The workshop will explore strategies to make the most of the conference from when the paper has been accepted to presenting the paper. The workshop will focus on preparing and delivering an effective PowerPoint, the advantages and disadvantages of handouts, time management and what resources to bring.
