About EduFest 2024
Innovative teaching is the adoption of creative, novel and new approaches to the process of facilitating learning – both in the classroom and online. Innovation in teaching can help to encourage students to try something different, to take an active role in their learning and to engage them with the subject matter in order to promote deeper understanding, critical thinking, problem solving and retention of information. Innovative teaching methods often include the use of technology, experimental learning and new or sometimes untested teaching practices; equally, it can encompass traditional approaches, but applied in new contexts which are novel to your own practices. For EduFest 2024, we are keen to hear about your innovative approaches to teaching; whether that involves a new approach that has had a positive effect on student engagement and learning, or something you tried that did not work well and what lessons you learned along the way.
You may have developed your practice for Curriculum Transformation through the process of reimaging, redesigning and reforming your curriculum to align with evolving educational goals, advances in your discipline or developments in the wider sector. EduFest 2024 is an ideal opportunity to showcase any developments carried out in Semester one.
In addition, it is also an opportunity to reflect on over twelve months since the explosion of General Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools, and what advantages and challenges this poses to teaching and learning. As AI technologies continue to evolve, we are keen to hear how educators and researchers are exploring its potential impact on teaching and learning, and so we invite any early adopters to share their experiences.
We look forward to the learning and celebrating some of the excellent work carried out at the University in this domain and hearing from some of our TDF project holders and other current teaching and learning initiatives.
