Find a teaching solution

Wouldn't it be great if you could find a solution to some of the challenges of teaching in 3 simple steps?  We have partnered with the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence & Educational Innovation at the Carnegie Mellon University, Pennsylvania to bring you highly regarded resources for teaching.  These will continue to updated and revised for the Australian and UniSA context so we encourage you to visit often.

We also welcome your contribution to this collection, so if you have a solution we haven't thought of yet, or a challenge we haven't solved, then let us know.

Teaching practice

We are in the middle of moving our resources over to this new website and developing more resources to reflect the new Digital Learning Strategy.  In the meantime you can still browse our teaching resources here.

We also asked three Academics to share a story about their teaching practice. Read what they had to say.

Tim Sawyer (HLS) on digital learning.

Ruth Geer (EDU) on teaching in HE

Tony Wood (NBE) on student engagement.

If you have a story to share let us know; or we might be in touch soon to put you in the Academic spotlight.

Peer review of teachingAcademic staff in classroom

Introduced toward the end of 2015, the Peer review of teaching process is available to all UniSA academics.  A complete guide to the process is available for those staff interested in knowing more. A framework for defining and measuring Academic standards at UniSA (coursework students, staff and curriculum) is also available (pdf 264kb).

Learning analytics

Learning analytics is the generation and use of data to support improved learning and teaching. It is an evidence-based approach to evaluate, and possibly change, learning and teaching practices and the environments in which they occur. Fundamentally it is about providing timely insight into what is occurring as students engage (or don’t) with the materials in their courses so that students, teaching staff and administrators can take informed action.
