Learning spaces
Learning spaces (Philip Hua) Learning Spaces are very important in the way learning is guided in face to face sessions. In this session, you will be taken on a journey exploring case studies from academics who have been innovative in the way they teach, this will give you some ideas of how you may want to approach your teaching to engage your students in "active learning" for better academic outcomes.

Writing aligned assessment tasks
This workshop will assist you with writing assessment tasks that align to subject learning outcomes. We will consider the subject in the context of the course and what level of thinking is required for students to complete assessment of the subject. Using this framework we will develop assessments using a template with a worked example and then follow up with review questions. There will be opportunities for Q&A during the session. The session will be useful for staff developing subjects and reviewing alignment in already existing subjects.

Workshop: Introduction to Quantext - open source text analysis tool
In this online introductory seminar we introduce Quantext, an open source text analysis tool in the early stages of development. It has been designed to help you to extract teaching insights from student short-form writing. Material which is routinely uploaded to your institutional Learning Management Systems (LMS) for assessment or plagiarism checks can be systematically analysed to improve teaching and inform learning design. For example, Quantext could help you to quickly identify and fix ambiguous or confusing questions, address common misconceptions before summative assessments or track how well your students are learning the language of your discipline. Quantext also has potential for analysing student responses to teaching evaluations and discussion forum posts.
