Teaching and Learning Online Professional Development unit

The AustMS website is the home of the on-line professional development unit Effective Teaching, Effective Learning in the Quantitative Disciplines. The unit was developed under an ALTC grant, by a project team of mathematicians, and is now in its seventh year. The unit will be coordinated from La Trobe in first semester 2017 (on behalf of the AustMS Standing Committee on Mathematics Education).

The unit is available free to AustMS members, and also to reciprocal members. The modules are available for all to view; by formally enrolling and completing three assessment tasks, participants can receive a certificate of completion. By negotiation with your home institution, you may be able to substitute this discipline-based unit for more generic teaching-and-learning training that they require, or as one unit in a Graduate Certificate of Higher Education, as some participants have already done.

The unit is suitable both for tutors and lecturers. The assessment tasks must be completed when one is teaching a class, as they involve production of teaching and assessment materials and reflection upon them.

The unit will commence on March 6th (or slightly later by negotiation), and will run for 15 weeks; it requires around 3 hours per week of work.
