AUT Teaching and Learning Conference 2020

AUT Teaching and Learning Conference 2020 (TLC 2020) will explore how interdisciplinary collaboration approaches allow students to experience learning that focuses on problem-framing, making connections and collaboration. The conference brings together staff from across AUT to share and discuss good practice and current scholarship and research, in learning and teaching.

Learning Together: Connections through Collaboration

2020 has been a year of change, challenge and growth. Learning, for students and staff alike, has been shaped in new and exciting ways and our time spent at distance has taught us the value of working and learning together. Amidst the changes, the show will go on! 

We are crossing our fingers and toes that AUT Teaching and Learning Conference 2020 will provide an opportunity for staff to re-connect face-to-face. The conference is a significant occasion for staff to share and discuss good practice and current scholarship in learning and teaching, and to hear from our international virtual Key Note,  Professor Gray Kochhar-Lindgren.

AUT Teaching and Learning Conference 2020 will explore how interdisciplinary collaboration approaches allow students to experience learning that focuses on problem-framing, making connections and collaboration. 

This year we invite AUT staff to learn together and make connections, as we explore the Interdisciplinary Collaboration pillar of the Xceptional Learning Experiences (XLE) Framework.  This pillar recognises that graduates will work in and across diverse teams/contexts to explore and develop creative approaches needed to solve many real-life problems they will face in the workplace and the wider community.  

The conference will allow staff to reflect on how they can create learning spaces that are mindful of inter-culturalism and bi-culturalism, as well as interdisciplinary approaches.   

TLC 2020 celebrates the different approaches to knowing, doing and being that underpin our relationships within and across our society, cultures, disciplines and learning spaces. 

Showcase Submissions

We invite AUT staff to submit Showcase abstracts that reflect on their experiences, in response to the conference sub-themes of: 

Cultivating relationships in learning and teaching  

Bi-cultural and intercultural approaches to knowing, being, doing in learning spaces  

Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to learning and assessment tasks  

Problem-framing and collaborative inquiry

What does a Showcase entail?

Showcases provide staff the opportunity to share current practice or research aligned to the themes above. A Showcase is a 15 minute presentation followed by 10 minutes of questions. 

Please submit a 300-word abstract for consideration using the Showcase Submission Form button below.

The process is such that it provides an opportunity for staff to contribute a scholarly output for 2020.
