The Learning Transformation (LT) initiative transitions large cohort units towards highly interactive learning approaches, that appropriately employ world-class educational technologies and modalities. This is achieved in conjunction with on-campus and virtual learning spaces, which move away from a reliance on traditional large-capacity lecture theatres.
Through partnerships with faculties, Learning Transformation:
- Embeds highly engaging learning opportunities for students
- Develops highly interactive learning approaches in appropriate modalities
- Employs world-class educational technologies in conjunction with virtual and on-campus learning spaces
- Provides expert advice and guidance on transformation of curriculum and assessment
- Shapes and facilitates educational innovation in a strategic and sustainable manner
- Recognises and communicates the need for educational change, stimulating discussion about best practice
- Supports faculties in adopting new ways of thinking and working, building capacity for future change and growth
