About this session

This session is for people who are involved in educational innovation, enhancement of learning and teaching, curriculum and assessment reform, academic development, design for learning, scholarship of teaching and learning and associated areas. 

Its purpose is to offer an opportunity for people involved in these areas to think about, and discuss, ways of strengthening the research they do in this broad and complicated space. To guide discussion, Peter will touch on each of the following:

  • Framing research to be useful and to contribute to fundamental understanding
  • Expanding conceptions of the research space: including the ‘what’ and ‘why’ as well as the ‘how’ of university learning
  • Securing resources for research
  • Strengthening capacity to create and apply research-based knowledge
  • Connecting individual and collective endeavours.
