The ITaLI Teaching Masterclass Series is a venue for inspirational and successful teachers to share effective approaches and best practices for teaching. The aim of the series is to assist attendees in learning tangible, practical skills that help them build on their existing expertise to excel in teaching for 21st-century students.  If you have any suggestions or feedback on how we can improve the series, please contact us using this feedback form or email the coordinator of series, Dr Hassan Khosravi, at

Expression of Interest: Please fill out this form to nominate your desired topic and date for presentation. We hope to have masterclasses on topics that would appeal and help a broad range of attendees and that align with the UQ Student Strategy. Presenters are, however, more than welcome to choose any topic related to teaching and learning.
