Our Community

We believe learning is best when it is social and active. That's why we are promoting a community approach to teaching practice, both online and face-to-face, yep blended. Read about the asynchronous online communities below and join the conversations happening online. or come along to one of the events around the campuses and join the informal discussions about teaching and learning, plus meet colleagues from other disciplines. Details about dates and locations are posted on the Events page.

 ePortfolio Teaching Group

Every student and staff member has an ePortfolio of their own which is like having your own personal webspace that is both secure and private. To access your ePortfolio simply go to ep.unisa.edu.au and logon. There is also a link on your learnonline course site in every Course Essentials block. ePortfolios are highly regarded as a learning tool and we have covered this in more depth in the Teaching Technologies. To help get your started, there is an Academic ePortfolio group which we encourage you to join. Just search for Academics ePortfolio Group in Find Groups in ePortfolio and join our community.

Yammer is a private social network on which UniSA has an all-staff license. To access simply go to Yammer and enter your UniSA email. You'll see there are already plenty of staff posting and sharing on the network, as well as a number of groups you can join. We have created a group called Academic Development if you'd like to join us there. And remember to set your preferences in the settings which you can access via the 3 dots in the top right corner of the Yammer screen.

Moodle logo  Moodle Conversations

We have created a learnonline course site to help you experience what it's like to be a student. To access simply go to Teaching conversations and logon. You can try out different forums from a student perspective, participate in a quiz, get back a grade, feedback and a turnitin report plus anything else learnonline related. The reason we called it "conversations" is so you can post in the forum what your experience was like and share this with others who visit. The intention is to keep the conversation here only about learnonline and its many resource and activity options.

Social Media

Sometimes there is a place for social media in our teaching as well as in our own professional networks. Whilst we don't necessarily advocate using social media in your teaching (at least not without thoughtful consideration), we do encourage you to consider it as part of your professional networking. Whether you're planning to use social media, or just curious for now, we invite you to have a look at our own social media networks. Yes we have one of pretty much all the mainstream networks; but, you can select just one or two, or all of them depending on your interest. Our social media accounts, under the Teaching Innovation banner, can be found below with links to join us online.

From time to time we facilitate social media workshops to help you understand how to use social media and where it may add to the student learning experience, so keep an eye on the events calendar, or we can organise a workshop for your own group.
