All current UWA staff with a role in learning and teaching are invited to take part in Transforming Teaching for Learning (TTL) offered by the Centre for Education Futures.
Transforming Teaching for Learning is a professional development program that consists of three discrete modules which must be taken sequentially:
- Module 1 focuses on the development of learning leadership by introducing the past, present and future of learning. (4 weeks)
- Module 2 explores learning design via the Carpe Diem process, assisting you in the creation of active and engaging units, with content, learning activities and assessments that are scaffolded to the learning outcomes. (5 weeks)
- Module 3 guides you through implementing and evaluating a learning and teaching innovation. (4 weeks)
Refer to the Study Synopsis for detailed information.
Time and Cost
The modules are free to all eligible UWA staff.
Like any formalised program of study, TTL requires a time commitment. Before registering, participants should ensure they have adequate time to commit to completing the modules. The modules are fully online for access at any time, with the activities paced on a week-by-week basis. The study workload is approximately 10 hours per week for all activities and reading, plus approximately 10 hours per module for the assessment tasks. The total hours for TTL, comprising the three modules, are approximately 150 hours.
The TTL professional development program is essential for new staff in academic roles at the Perth and Albany campuses. It will also be of interest to experienced staff seeking fresh inspiration and the opportunity to work with others to reflect on their teaching. We also welcome professional staff with responsibility for contributions to student learning in any form.
Sessional staff are welcome to enrol in TTL. If you are a sessional staff member, please seek approval from your Head of School before registering.
The TTL modules are available entirely online via the Learning Management System (LMS) with optional Collaborate (webinar) meetings. In the modules, staff will work together in groups supported by the TTL team.
Enrolment and Exemptions
The three modules must be completed in sequence, but breaks between them are acceptable. Completion of a full Carpe Diem learning design workshop (face-to-face) can substitute for Module 2, although the assessment requirements must still be met.
Upon successful completion of TTL and admission to the University’s Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching (course load of 24 credit points), staff will be granted credit for the unit EDUC5760 Education Studies as per the course rules. Eligible UWA staff will be provided with a fee-exemption scholarship for the Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching.
Please note: if there are insufficient registrations for a module to run, you will be contacted about alternative options. We do not have any capacity to provide payment for time spent on the unit.
