Zoom is now our preferred platform for synchronous online teaching

Introducing Zoom in 2020 added another tool to our digital learning environment and prompted us to re-evaluate the platforms we use to create synchronous online classrooms.

Engaging students in real-world projects online

As part of ‘Information Systems in Practice’, a capstone unit in the Master of Information Systems, students work for an industry client on a consultancy style project that involves solving information systems problems. Associate Professor Bardo Fraunholz, unit chair, supported by Vivek Venkiteswaran, implemented Microsoft Teams and Planner to support collaborative learning.

How do we help our students thrive?

The FutureLearn course Professional Resilience: Building Skills to Thrive at Work is a two week open course designed, by Deakin’s Assoc. Prof. Marcus O’Donnell, to explore ways of building personal and professional resilience.

A team of teaching and learning staff across Deakin University have created the Tales of teaching online podcast to share their expertise and stories of teaching online.
