Academic Leadership in Teaching and Learning

Due to staff unavailability, the advertised course 'Academic Leadership in Teaching and Learning’ will not be offered until semester 1, 2020. 

In Semester 2 2019, CHELT is offering Academic Leadership Plus, which may be taken as one or more individual sessions, or as a precursor or extension to the regular 8 module course.

This 5 week offering will address the constraints and opportunities which surround academic leadership of teaching and learning. The 'Plus' modules will be offered by Linda Hort, Emeritus Fellow at ANU, whose academic career focussed on Teaching and Learning in Australian Universities.

The Academic Leadership in Teaching and Learning program in 2020 will include modules that are designed to help participants extend and enrich their repertoire of leadership capabilities.

Show Academic Leadership workshop calendar

  • Leadership roles (AL9) The roles and interests of participants in academic leadership will be explored and the remainder of the course will be focussed on addressing the particular issues and needs that are raised. Participants should come prepared to share their reasons for attending the course and an indication of what they hope to learn through their attendance.
  • The context of University teaching and learning and how this impacts academic leadership (AL10) Discussion could include the impact on academic leadership of national and state based interests in higher education; government and discipline enquiries and reviews; legislative instruments; stakeholder interests; University agendas; and particular ways in which a University, such as ANU, contextualises teaching and learning. The impact of context on academic leadership will be explored.
  • Organisational structures and their impact on academic leadership (AL11) Organisational and governance structures will be explored to determine the constraints and opportunities that emerge for leadership through the structures, policies, processes and procedures that exist within Universities. A range of organisational structure models will be examined to explore their impacts on academic leadership.
  • The power and politics that play out in relation to academic leadership in teaching and learning (AL12) The dynamics of organisational power and politics will be explored to show the constraints and opportunities that emerge and how to manage the dynamic for leadership. Depending on the interest of the participants, this session could also explore specific issues including gender, minority groups and inclusion, the role of students and student groups, and emerging trends in social media.
  • Learning to lead in relation to constraints and opportunities (AL13) This session will focus on how personal or professional development can be harnessed to extend the leadership potential of those attending the course. Participants will assess the extent to which they have fulfilled their expectations in attending the course and explore ways to extend their leadership roles.

Interactive Teaching

In 2019 the University will implement an Interactive Learning Project (iLEAP), aimed at enhancing the quality of University learning. The goal of iLEAP is to foster student interactivity, capitalising on the rich diversity we have at ANU, within our student body, amongst lecturers and tutors, and through the use of our high-quality scholarly resources.

Show Interactive Teaching workshop calendar

This series of workshops will support the iLEAP project and assist those seeking to transform their practice through the development of interactivity in the classroom. We will explore the theoretical underpinnings of interaction in University classrooms and try out research-based strategies and approaches used to foster interactivity leading to deeper learning. There will also be support for those who are keen to experiment and to document the specific outcomes of approaches in their own courses.

  • Approaches to Interactive Teaching (IL1) Exploring contrasting approaches to Interactive Learning to facilitate interactivity.
  • Fostering Interactivity (IL2) Foster interaction between learner and lecturer.
  • Interactive Assessment tasks (IL3) Details TBA
  • Evaluating Interactive Learning (IL4) Details TBA
