1:20 PM CASE STUDY: An Innovative Framework to Enable Educators to Support Student Success

The University of Newcastle is implementing an innovative new education framework to ensure an environment that promotes academic and social success for students. A critical component of that framework is enhancement of the capability of our educators. Initiatives within the framework are supported by a higher University profile for educational excellence and a strong focus on evaluation of outcomes, to ensure that educators are engaged and their efforts are effective. Specific initiatives include:

•    Grants and awards to support innovative teaching; and regular opportunities to share ideas across the university
•    Support for innovative curriculum and course design;
•    Acknowledgement of the importance of students in supporting their peers; and
•    Encouragement of scholarship in teaching and learning, particularly in improving equity of outcomes
