On the 6th of November the Council of Australasian University Leaders in Learning and Teaching (CAULLT) hosted the Australasian Advancing Academic Development good practice awards. The event brought together the finalists at the Queensland University of Technology to showcase and celebrate the work of teaching teams across the country.

Deakin University was represented by Director of Digital Learning, Chie Adachi, who detailed the collaborative work of the teaching team who created and taught the Transforming Digital Learning MOOC. Since its launch the short course has had a significant level of international engagement from thousands of learners participating from across over 50 countries. The free short course offers a number of important tips, tools and approaches to equip academics and professionals with an understanding of the pedagogical foundations integral for the development and delivery of effective digital learning. Below is a short video trailer from the team discussing their collaborative work:

The team was awarded a good practice certificate by The Advancing Academic Development project group to recognise their work as finalists. To commemorate the occasion, Deputy Vice Chancellor Education, Liz Johnson hosted a small event at Deakin Downtown to present a reprise of Chie’s presentation, and to personally award the team with their certificates.
