Learning and Teaching Forum

Educational Excellence: Transforming Futures

This year, the Learning and Teaching Forum consisted of two events over two days.

We had an outstanding program of presentations, where over 50 UNSW academics provided an opportunity to share insights, ideas and strategies on how educational excellence though the domains of the Scientia Educational Experience will transform student learning experience at UNSW. 

The Forum’s Poster Gallery showcased 15 examples of effective teaching practice from academic and professional staff across the University and was also an opportunity for thought-provoking discussions and sharing ideas for improving student outcomes at UNSW.   Congratulations to Adina Stan and Mahnaz Armat for their winning poster (as voted by Forum attendees), “Blended Learning - Best Practice for a Dynamic World?”.  You can view all of the posters here.

"I found the Learning and Teaching forum very well-organised and the sessions insightful and thought-provoking. It was a unique opportunity to exchange thoughts and share ideas with other educators."  Forum attendee.
