Foundations in Learning and Teaching (FiLT) 2016 Session 2
The Foundations in Learning and Teaching (FiLT) program has been redesigned for Session 2 as a blended learning experience, developed and delivered in partnership by Faculty Learning and Teaching Teams and Learning Innovation Hub (LIH) staff.
FiLT consists of four modules, each of which includes common (and required) face-to-face and online components plus a range of faculty-specified learning activities.
The common face-to-face modules are scheduled as follows. Each will commence with a light lunch from 1pm, with the learning session getting under way at 1.30pm.
Module 1 Learning and Teaching - Introduction
Wed 27 July 1:00-4:30 E6A 133
Module 2 Curriculum and Assessment - Introduction
Wed 24 Aug 1:00-4:30 E6B 149
Module 3 Learning Design with Educational Technologies - Mid-module Session
Wed 28 Sept 1:00-4:30 E6B 149
Module 4 Reflective Practice and Evaluation - Introduction
Wed 26 Oct 1:00-4:30 E6A 116
Each module provides an overview of contemporary theories for learning and teaching practice, the voice of experienced teachers and peers, and a rich set of useful resources. While theoretically based, the modules also offer a practical, interactive and experiential approach to help build a platform from which you will develop your own teaching approach and an evidence base for your career progression.
Both online and face-to-face learning experiences are designed to be interactive therefore you will be required to prepare for and participate in discussions and learning activities, to reflect on your own responses to issues and tasks, and to share ideas with your fellow participants. This interaction with your peers provides a foundation for an ongoing Community of Practice based on the FiLT Alumni group. You’ll hear more about this later in the year.
When you register for FiLT, you will also be enrolled in the Session 2 FiLT iLearn unit. The link to this unit will be sent to you in an email, although once enrolled the unit should also appear in your iLearn home page list under the Professional Learning Program heading. The iLearn unit includes an explanation of the specific requirements each Faculty has determined for each of the four modules and the requirements for completion of the FiLT program and attainment of the FiLT Certificate.
FiLT program and module learning outcomes are aligned with the UK Professional Standards Framework for Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education, providing a basis for progressing to an application for accreditation as a Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy.
Who should attend: Macquarie staff who are either new to teaching and are currently teaching and/or convening units, or are more experienced and interested in exploring aspects of learning and teaching and practice, with the knowledge and skills to enable them to operate as effective teachers. Staff involved in supporting and developing learning and teaching at Macquarie are also very welcome to attend, as the program will provide useful insights into their support and development work.
