Learning festival to be a virtual success

Optimising student experiences through technology and continuing to build international relationships will be explored during Learning and Teaching week at Casuarina campus.

Pro Vice-Chancellor of Education and Student Success Professor Martin Carroll said events, including Learning and Teaching Day on Monday, 11 September, would explore a new vision for CDU’s online learning environment.

“Establishing online courses for international students overseas will be a significant future focus for CDU,” he said. “Currently we provide online courses to Australian students and on-campus courses to international students – there is another world out there that we can tap into.”

CDU Learning and Teaching Day – themed “Technology Enhanced Learning and International Education” – will feature a workshop delivered by Blackboard, developer of the platform that CDU uses to deliver online education, at building Red 1, level 3, from 10am – 12pm.

A panel discussion on interaction between the Australian and Indian education systems will be held at Mal Nairn Auditorium from 1.30pm – 3pm.

Professor Carroll said CDU remained focused on leveraging technology to support Indigenous students, with Pro Vice-Chancellor Indigenous Leadership Professor Adrian Miller to be a keynote speaker at a Blackboard Teaching and Learning Conference at DoubleTree by Hilton, in Darwin, from 5 – 8 September.
