Professional Development

As part of the Academic Development Group’s ongoing commitment to building capabilities in learning and teaching, we are hosting and facilitating several PD opportunities throughout 2018.

For March there is a focus on Designing Rubrics and Group work projects to meet the requirements for Course Guides and the Assessment policy in Semester 2. Workshops on Feedback Technologies and Do it Yourself Video will investigate further use of digital tools in your learning environments
You will find in the calendar a number of curated PD opportunities offered by specialist learning and teaching organisations external to RMIT  that offer interesting and useful perspectives on learning and teaching.

Events for March

Grading and Feedback in Canvas

Explore the tools that Canvas offers to provide feedback to students and to support assessment grading. This workshop is aimed at staff who are using Canvas for teaching, not for staff setting up Canvas shells. Please bring your own device if possible.

Feedback Technologies

Feedback is a crucial part of learning and teaching. It provides students with an insight on how to improve their performance. There are numerous ways to provide feedback to students. This workshop will look at a variety of technology and tools for providing feedback. This workshop will look at the likes of canvas and GoSoapbox.

Designing Teamwork

Designing effective teamwork projects is a complex task. Not only do you need to be able to clearly articulate the aims and requirement of the project however you must also be able to design a project where you are able to assess the individual contribution of each team member.
