Who are UNFED?
The UNSW Network of Faculty Educational Developers (UNFED) is a community of practice that is coordinated by learning and teaching representatives from each Faculty with support from the Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education).
What does UNFED do?
The UNFED network is an opportunity for faculty staff who support teaching, learning and digital learning to get together as a group to share experiences, discuss common issues and make contact with staff in central support units such as Educational Delivery Services, Academic Development Services, the Library and the Learning Centre. Each month a different Faculty hosts the meeting, so it is an opportunity for Faculties to share local activities and innovations.
When does UNFED meet?
UNFED meetings are generally held from 12.30pm to 2.00pm during the last week of the month, with the day and location chosen by the hosting faculty. We usually present and discuss a couple of specific topics, with maximum opportunity for questions and discussion. For upcoming UNFED meetings, see the table below.
