Teaching Academy Presents: Contemporary Issues in Higher Education

What does this mean for learning and teaching at a regional university

The Charles Sturt University Education Strategy Vision 2030 calls for a “radical reimagination of the way we deliver learning and teaching to address the needs of modern regional Australia built on the foundations of “being proud of our regional identity, serving our communities through developing regional workforce, and being committed to equity and access for all”.

This online panel event features a range of thought leaders from Charles Sturt University who will speak about various hot topics and prompt us to think about what this means for us in learning and teaching at a regional university. Topics include generative artificial intelligence in learning and teaching, work-integrated learning, enhancing retention and success for regional higher education students, and advancing equity and access.
