Think Pieces

The Think Pieces Project provides an opportunity for an ongoing and open dialogue about how some of the CSU community are thinking about challenges and opportunities of that year’s Think Pieces theme. Short think pieces are invited (not more than 6 minutes long) and then discussed on Yammer (and/or by direct email, and/or by other social media), at a webinar mid-August and at a CSUED session.

We encourage staff to attend the Think Pieces events and join in the discussion. You can also continue the conversation on Yammer.

Think Pieces 2019

Our theme in 2019 is Working Together for Student Success

This theme integrates and explores how all activities and endeavours at CSU should focus ultimately on the success of our students.

Examples of such activities – given that it encompasses all services and every staff member at CSU:

  • research-informed teaching;
  • research;
  • course and subject design;
  • CSU values and GLOs;
  • assessment, moderation and other QA processes;
  • learning and teaching support in all its forms (library, learning technologies, learning analytics, direct student support, ICT, student administration services, etc.);
  • digital and physical learning environments be it formal or informal (including residences, campus spaces, grounds work, societies and sport, etc.);
  • digital and printed learning resources and materials;
  • HR services, Finance, etc.

The Think Pieces 2019 Project provides an opportunity for an ongoing, open dialogue about how some of the CSU community are thinking about these challenges and opportunities.

Full details about the 2019 Think Pieces is available here.
