Transitions: One Journey, Many Pathways

This three day international research conference focuses on the journey schools and teachers make as they reimagine and redevelop their learning spaces.

In Australia and many other countries, school design is being transformed with new flexible, innovative learning environments. Research is showing innovative learning environments are not a magic cure, but evidence is mounting that they constitute a powerful tool that – if used well – improves student educational experiences. We can now say schools (and teachers) navigate a transformative journey as they re-imagine their learning spaces.

What is involved in making the journey from traditional to innovative learning environments? What is the latest research telling us about how teachers can be supported on this journey?

The program will feature research presentations by graduate and early career researchers, educators and designers along with workshops, discussions and school tours. This event aims to connect research with practice and is ideal for teachers, school leaders, architects and policy makers involved in designing or refurbishing schools or developing teaching practices that use space to support innovative learning.

When: 2nd – 4th October

Where: Melbourne University

HERDSA 2019 conference event – HEA Fellowship Networking Event in Auckland

Wednesday 3rd July, 4.00-5.30pm (Day 1 of HERDSA 2019)

HEA Fellowship Networking event:
Encouraging recognition of Learning & Teaching

Higher Education Academy (HEA) Fellowships are being placed at the forefront of professional learning recognition in many Australasian universities – to develop, recognise and reward teaching and learning roles.

Would you like to know more about these Fellowships? Maybe you have HEA Fellowship and would like to meet other Fellowship holders at HERDSA? Or just interested to know more about the benefits of “fellowship” – of any sort!?

I am a HERDSA member who thinks there is value in an informal HEA Fellowship networking event for HEA Fellows and those interested in knowing more about the benefits of “fellowship”. We will discuss “fellowship” in general, and discuss the benefits of participating in recognition programs. Many universities in Australia and New Zealand have HEA fellowship programs or are considering integrating some aspect of reward and recognition of learning and teaching through fellowship within their institution. Maybe there is interest in forming a HERDSA Special Interest Group (SIG) to bring HEA fellowship holders together? Let’s meet and discuss!!

If cant attend or would like more information please register your interest via the URL below:

Pacific Territory Education Reform @ Auckland NZ

Theme – Educational pathways for Pacific learners

The learner-centered programme will be based around three stages of a Pacific learner’s journey through tertiary education under the following sub-themes:

  • Supporting learners to shape and start their educational pathways
    What can we do to support Pacific learners to shape their education pathway?
  • Supporting learners in their educational pathways
    What do we do well to respond to Pacific learners? What could we do better?
  • The outcomes from educational pathways
    How will we know our system is working for Pacific learners?

This year, for the first time, we are introducing three Talanoa sessions to enable delegates to discuss and debate key issues relating to each of the three sub-themes.

Date: 28 – 29 September

Where: Auckland, NZ
