What is this all about?

The Professional Digital Competencies projects (PDC) was an initiative supported by a 2018 University Teaching and Learning Strategic Priority Grant. The projects comprised 12 targeted interventions managed by the Department of Educational Studies, engaging academic staff from PACE, and the Faculties of Human Sciences and Arts, in projects designed to:

  • build staff technological capability and digital literacy;
  • integrate digital technologies more effectively in units and programs;
  • trial new and emerging technologies in different teaching and learning contexts.

This showcase event will comprise 8 minute vignettes on key methods and outcomes from each of the projects. Projects to be showcased include:

  • Using near real time data in PACE units: an investigation of how digitally-harvested  data can be used to inform better understanding of PACE students’ needs, expectations and outcomes, and be used in the classroom as teaching resources;
  • Breaking the 4th Wall: using high quality video and H5P to engage off campus students more interactively with online learning content;
  • The Voices of Experience: Voice masking and recording technology to communicate personal stories in sexuality education;
  • Virtual reality in the history and philosophy of education: Learning educational theories through a VR quiz game;
  • ADB-TV. Video production in Ancient History and Archaeology: introducing and trialling digital humanities (video production) and peer-peer assessment methods;
