Would you like to make your teaching more engaging using active learning strategies?

Do you find it challenging to demonstrate your teaching quality, other than using student evaluations?

This two-day workshop, co-organised by a team of award winning educators from Australian Universities and the University of Hong Kong, will show you how you can enhance and benchmark your teaching practice using a globally recognised professional standards framework.

Academics often find it difficult to evidence their teaching quality when they are reviewing performance or applying for promotions and jobs. This workshop gives participants the tools and frameworks to enhance their teaching practice and work towards achieving recognition by UK’s Higher Education Academy (HEA). The two-day workshop, led by award winning educators from Australian Universities and the University of Hong Kong, will show you how you can enhance and benchmark your teaching practice using a globally recognised professional standards framework. This event will be led by QUT Professor Abby Cathcart and HKU Professor Grahame Bilbow. Both are Principal Fellows of the HEA.
