Writing good learning outcomes
What is a good learning outcome? Why would we rewrite the ones we have already? Writing assessment tasks to align with learning outcomes can identify that the learning outcomes need to be rewritten. Maybe they are not at an adequate level to meet AQF standards. Maybe they are not measurable. Maybe they don’t align with the learning activities. Are they too vague, or too prescriptive? How many is too many? How do you get them changed anyway? Explore the answers to these questions, or bring your own. This workshop is an opportunity to work through what needs to be in a good learning outcome.

Flripgrid Discussion through video
Brief: “Flipgrid is a video and social learning tool which has been around for some years now, with some successful deployments at CSU. However, recent changes to the flipgrid platform and ownership have removed the need to purchase an annual license, therefore making it more accessible to academics at CSU whilst maintaining student safety and privacy. In this PD (or 30 minute) session Ged will walk you through the basics of establishing and deploying a flipgrid within your subject and briefly discuss different use cases and limitations of this tool.” Presented by: Ged Bourke (OLM PD Lead)
