GAGGLE Program: Educational Design at the ANU

Why these things go out on email where only a few can see I dunno. It said all welcome, so I've put it up on my blog so I can easily link others to the info.

GAGGLE Program: Educational Design at the ANU

16 October 2009 4-6pm

Australian National University, Canberra. Sir Roland Wilson Building, Short Course Room 1 (on the left at the top of the stairs), here's a map to ANU.. you and me both will be lost finding the building.

The ANU has educational designers, developers and technologists in every College, each engaged in activities with a College-specific focus. This group meets regularly, but while there are common themes to their work, each area is using a slightly different approach to the issues. In this session, representatives from each area will speak briefly about their work, their professional practice, and the current focus of their operational activity. Each speaker will make a 10 minutes presentation, and then there will be a panel discussion about the issues and implications.
Session A: 1 hour

  1. Megan Poore, College of Arts and the Social Sciences: New media literacy in the new knowledge space
  2. Aliya Steed / Jonathan Powles, College of Law: The development of a simulated professional learning environment for law
  3. Lauren Kane / Debbie Pioch, College of Engineering and Computer Science: Online management of course information / CECS and the hubs and spokes project with UniSA
  4. James Meek, College of Asia and the Pacific: The Conference Model (and alternative to lectures) and Hidden Treasures (archival source material)
  5. Paula Newitt, Colleges of Science: Research experiences in the undergraduate curriculum
  6. Deborah Veness, College of Economics and Business: Finding a way to make standards descriptors useful to a University teacher in the business disciplines
Session B: 1/2 hour

Each speaker will finish with a provocative question, which will lead into a group discussion.

Session C: 15-20 minutes

Finally, Tom Worthington will give us a brief presentation on his Green ICT course, which is delivered without lectures or examinations.
