The Centre for Learning and Teaching is a newly established cross-university service centre with two core streams of activity:
Learning Support focussed on the delivery of services that provide academic support for students. This team manages and delivers core activities including the provision of academic and communications skills support to undergraduate and postgraduate students, coordinates the Post Entry Language Assessment, and hosts ECU’s enabling program, the University Preparation Course.
In collaboration with the Graduate Research School, the Centre also provides support for students in Higher Degree by Research programs.
Teaching Support focussed on the provision of services that support ECU and our Academic Staff to achieve excellence in teaching through the provision of academic professional development, the application of innovative learning technologies, and support for the effective implementation of University teaching and learning policies in ECU’s eight Schools.
The Learning Solutions team delivers and promotes innovative expertise in current and emerging learning technologies to contribute to ECU’s delivery of high quality student focused outcomes.
We live in a time of unprecedented change in terms of data availability and organisation, an exponential age in which information is abundant and accessible. Group-forming is incredibly easy and dynamic. Media is all pervasive and user created, thanks to wireless Internet and mobile device convergence.
Connection is king and we are beginning to see the blurring of boundaries between home, work and learning. This has exciting implications for learning at all levels. The static Internet is being replaced by new levels of connection and interactivity – welcome Web 2.0. This is an exciting time to be involved in education.
The Learning Solutions team was created to help ECU staff design, build and refine their learning opportunities in the context of this hyper-connected, information-rich world. We aim to help make teaching relevant, rigorous and innovative.
