About Us

Exploring innovation, finding inspiration, sharing ideas

The Teaching Innovation Unit (TIU) supports academics to drive innovation in their teaching practices and curriculum, and enhance the use of digital technologies to facilitate learning.

In this, we are guided by UniSA's Teaching and Learning Framework and Teaching Practice guidelines.

Our key areas of focus include:

As a unit, we work closely with the Deans: Teaching and Learning across each Division.

Our external focus is about global research on new innovations for teaching and learning; but, innovation doesn't just happen. New ideas must be tested for efficacy, scalability and ease of integration by our consultants and analysts who are constantly reviewing and updating the practices and technologies we work with.

We also collaborate with academics who are forging innovation in their own teaching and welcome the opportunity to share their insights with you.

As you explore the TIU website you will discover the many areas of innovation and support we provide.
