Teaching Conference 2018

Academic Staff of the University of Divinity are invited to this year’s Teaching Conference (an event building on our past five “Teaching for Learning Days”).

The newly reformed Learning and Teaching Committee is planning a day around the theme:

Celebrating Diversity and Inclusion

Keynotes will be delivered by our colleagues Siu Fung Wu “Intercultural learning and teaching: An East Asian experience” and Naomi Wolfe “Celebrating Aboriginality and our context”.

There will be opportunities to explore what thinking about culture means in our own teaching contexts as well as the usual opportunity to pick-up some tips and tricks from colleagues.

Attendance will count towards ongoing “Teaching Active Status”.
