This learning community aims to share and foster effective practice in teaching-based research across all disciplines. Supported initially by the West Australian Network for Dissemination, this group uses the Curriculum Evaluation and Research (CER) Framework, developed by Associate Professor Andrea Carr and Dr Jo-Anne Kelder from the University of Tasmania, as a model to guide thinking about whole-of-course approaches to embedding evaluation and research into teaching.
The learning community welcomes individuals and course teaching teams. Together, we endeavour to embed evaluation and research into teaching using natural data that is generated when teaching a unit or course. The group supports each other to develop capacity, team building and leadership in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and to generate SoTL ethics applications and outputs e.g. conference papers, publications, etc. Outcomes are useful for quality assurance, quality improvement, and scholarship of teaching and learning in the courses and will also generate useful evidence for future teaching or program award or promotion applications.
If you are interested in joining the learning community, or sharing your own evaluation and scholarship experience, please contact either of the coordinators:
To attend our next meeting, please register (essential for catering purposes) through Staff Kiosk or the Staff Development Calendar.
The inaugural meeting of the learning community was a workshop led by Associate Professor Andrea Car and Dr Jo-Anne Kelder at the Teaching and Learning Forum in February, followed by a second meeting with the developers of the CER. We will meet 3-4 times a year to share practice.
