Forty-Five Minute Zone Census Date but not too late
Census Date seems to come all too quickly, and it’s easy for students to fall behind their studies before they realise it. At this point, you may be wondering which students have never properly engaged with subject learning. In this 45 minute session you will be guided on how to use Retention Centre to identify unengaged/disengaged students and then to send them a personalised notification to ‘nudge’ them forward. Shared Presenters: ALTS team, Learning Technologies unit Online@ https://connect.csu.edu.au/alts/

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.
