UniSA Teaching & Learning Symposium 2023


The 5th Annual UniSA Teaching and Learning Symposium 2023 invites staff from across the university to come together for a one-day conversation about teaching and learning on Friday 17 November.

The aim of the symposium is to provide an opportunity to share practice and make visible all the great work we are doing – from small scale to large. This event is about challenges, successes, interventions tried and failed, and learnings gained from inquiries made into learning and teaching theory and practice.

If you are new to participating in conferences, we are also offering an opportunity to be mentored by an experienced academic as you develop your presentation.

Presentations are invited on research and/or practice and there will be a special stream at the symposium dedicated to showcasing Authentic Assessment. We’d really like to hear from you if you have an authentic assessment design or implementation to share.
