The event will be run by the Western Australian Network for Dissemination (WAND), which was set up to continue the networking activities of the recently disbanded Australian Learning and Teaching Council (ALTC).
Murdoch University Associate Professor in Educational Design, Rob Phillips said WAND was established to allow academic staff in Western Australian universities to continue to share information about awards, grants and fellowships in learning and teaching.
“WAND is an overarching steering group supporting and coordinating the learning and teaching activities carried out at the five WA universities,” Professor Phillips said.
“As well as supporting general networking, WAND will conduct three annual events – a sharing day in November, a conference in February (the Teaching and Learning Forum), and a workshop in the middle of the year.
The WAND Sharing Day on November 7 will give academics the chance to share the outcomes of their existing learning and teaching grants and fellowships.”
A highlight of the Sharing Day will be a keynote address by Professor Peter Goodyear from the University of Sydney on Sustainable innovation in higher education: learning, technology and design. Professor Goodyear is an Australian Laureate Fellow and an ALTC Senior Fellow.
The WAND sharing day will be held in Murdoch’s new, state of the art Learning Link Building.
