Curricula and resources developed for student learning will relate to the specifics of a subject and discipline but can also draw on wider good practice to reflect a command of the field.
This may include: developing and presenting coherent and imaginative resources for student learning; implementing research-led approaches to learning and teaching; demonstrating up-to-date knowledge of the field of study in the design of the curriculum and the creation of resources for learning; communicating clear objectives and expectations for student learning.
Each course and subject offered by the Faculty is included in the University Handbook. This is a central reference that offers a summary of each subject, as well as Generic Skills / Intended Learning Outcomes, Assessments, and other important information.
Copyright in Teaching
"The Copyright Act includes a number of provisions that allow copyright material, to be used for teaching. Material can be made available on the LMS, included in a print coursepack or a digital coursepack (such as a CD or USB drive), given as a class handout or shown in class."
This site, provided by the Copyright Office, offers clear guidelines and further links to understand how your use of others' materials, and your own, should be considered in your teaching. The ABP Library may also be able to assist.
Australian Indigenous Architecture, Place-making & Design; LibGuide
The Australian Indigenous Architecture, Place-making & Design LIBGUIDE offers a wide range of content for staff and students at the University of Melbourne Library.
Readings Online allows you to add, organize and control your readings and ensures copyright compliance. Access to Readings Online is seamless via your LMS subject page.
Video for Teaching
Producing a video can be a daunting task, but Learning Environments have developed a VIDEO PRODUCTION MATRIX to help staff to select the best style of video production for a teaching / learning purpose. The links to resource types are very helpful when starting to think about incorporating video in your teaching, and include some very useful Production Tips to help avoid rookie (or even semi-expert) mistakes.
Professional Development workshops (see also Developing Your Teaching) offered by Learning Environments and the Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education include DESIGNING FOR LEARNING WITH TECHNOLOGY.
Learning Environments Video Showcase
The LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS SHOWCASE includes multiple examples of communication techniques involving video from across the University of Melbourne. These are professional productions, and offer ideas for future approaches to Built Environments Learning and Teaching whether it has high (or lower) production values. Learning Environments may also be available to support development of online content for particular subjects - please contact BEL+T to discuss.
Learning and Teaching Repository
The LEARNING AND TEACHING REPOSITORY contains a searchable collection of higher education learning and teaching materials flowing from projects funded by the Australian Government from 1994-2018. This site includes over 1000 resources that address key challenges and possibilities for higher education research and delivery. For example, this includes 40 resources focussed on assessment, and 22 specific to built environment education. If you have a question related to higher education, committed and informed researchers in Australian Universities will likely be able to contribute through the outcomes of these extended research projects.
Higher Education Academy / Advance HE Research Hub
Higher Education Academy / Advance HE, based in the UK offers access to research and other publications focussed on learning in Higher Education.
"(Tutor) developed an individual vision for the studio, and encouraged students to set their own research agendas - appreciating the different perspective of every student, and growing a spirit of radical exploration of ideas. Then, provided additional resources, and gave specific technical support when required, although the best advice wsa for developing independent learning: develop a really specific question, and by the time you've formulated the question, you've probably figured out how you're going to answer it yourself."
"Thoughtful and current teaching methods that engaged students on a personal level as well as a collective level for larger engagement. Fostered a sense of belonging to a group (classroom) where we all aimed to better oirselves and our projects."
"In addition to the required weekly information, readings, and questions we are provided with film clips, YouTube videos and other things designed to further our engagement with the topic."
