This session will focus on supporting teaching focussed (TF) academics as they reconsider how they communicate their teaching impact and achievements in the context of their academic portfolio. Examples of how to evidence claims and what counts will be shared, as well as insights from a range of TF academics who have experience with these processes at all levels.

The event will run from 2–3.30pm. From 3.30–4pm, everyone is invited to informal networking over afternoon tea, even if you can not make the whole session.

About UQ Teaching Focused Network

Coordinated by: Associate Professor Kelly Matthews

The UQ Teaching Focused Network is open to all UQ staff interested in scholarly approaches to teaching, although teaching-focused (TF) staff are the primary audience. This network connects TF academics from across UQ, promotes sharing of practices, nurtures support for career development, enables consultation on strategic planning, and exchanges information relevant to TF roles.

The TF Network Leadership Group steers and guides the direction of the network, including events and communication amongst TF academics across UQ.
