Scientia Education Experience: Communities
This presentation provides practical and tangible examples, from deep within the belly of the teaching interface, that will help staff build learning communities with, and for, your undergraduate students. We will look at ways to inspire and motivate students, and approaches that enhance their sense of purpose and direction while studying with us at UNSW. We will also discuss ways to connect first and final year students so that students are part of a learning environment that transcends their immediate surroundings and experiences. And there might be a few gags too, depending on time. No promises though.
This presentation aligns with the following UNSW Communities of Practice 'Student Wellbeing'. More information can be found here.
