This year's CSU ed conference, Valuing Teaching: CSU's Distinctive Learning Experience, is an opportunity to discuss learning and teaching in the context of the newly-released University Strategy 2017-2022.  Underpinned by the CSU Values, the three areas of strategic focus in this 5-year plan relevant to the conference are:

  • Transform online,
  • Transform on campus, and
  • Transform Quality and Distinctiveness.

The CSU values - of being Insightful, Inclusive, Impactful and Inspiring - are inherent in CSU's Graduate Learning Outcomes and Quality Learning and Teaching Standards, all of which are in place to have a transformative effect on our students and the communities in which they live and work.

The Wiradjuri phrase 'yindyamarra winhanganha', meaning 'the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in', sums up the CSU ethos of developing and spreading wisdom to make the world a better place. To achieve this goal, we need to understand how all of CSU's initiatives work together as a whole.

The conference is designed around four distinct but related themes that address how the CSU Values can guide our day-to-day learning and teaching activities for the benefit of our students, our communities, our colleagues and ourselves.

  1. Integrating the CSU Values into our teaching practices.
  2. Creating a distinctive student experience through the GLOs.
  3. Transforming the student online experience.
  4. Transforming the student on campus experience.

We look forward to you joining us at the Conference!
