Deakin Learning and Teaching Conference recordings now live



Teaching and Learning
Annual Conference
Students as Partners

The Deakin Learning and Teaching Conference took place on 10 and 11 of November and played host to over 300 attendees. The virtual conference included live Zoom sessions and panels, as well as web-located video presentations and e-posters. Now in its 11th year the annual conference was a chance for staff involved in learning and teaching to come together and reflect on our teaching practice, recognise our achievements, and acknowledge the contribution of Deakin students as our partners. Presentations all addressed the conference theme, Design, Deliver, Enable, Lead, and how these central capabilities underpin learning and teaching at Deakin.  

If you missed the event or want to revisit your favourite sessions, you can now access recordings of each session via the Past conferences Page on the conference website. Asynchronous sessions including video presentations and e-posters are also available to view.  

Professor Mark Rose, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Indigenous Strategy and Innovation gave a heartening Acknowledgement of Country and honoured the Aboriginal tradition of sharing ideas to learn and broaden knowledge. In the Opening Keynote Presentation Professor Liz Johnson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Education, praised the Deakin community and shared commitment towards building better learning environments: 

‘We are here to learn “proper way”, through building relationships and storytelling. We’ve got many stories to share. We’ve got challenges, successes, new ways of working, new ideas and we know that sharing builds communities of practice to create better learning and teaching.’ 

Due to the high calibre and large number of submissions, Deakin will conduct an additional Learning and Teaching Workshop Day, to be held on 24 of February at Deakin Downtown. Held on one day, the event will feature new workshops and presentations that were not included in the November conference program.
