Developing a teaching strategy – workshop

I’m please to be able to announce that I’ll be giving a workshop on Developing a Teaching Strategy as part of a series hosted by my university and ANZAM (Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management).

In this workshop I’ll be discussing how to pull together a “teaching strategy” that includes a combination of what kinds of activities are needed and how to go about automating as many of them as possible to ensure consistent quality, timeliness and efficiency.

The session is ostensibly for Early Career Academics, however I’ll also provide an overview of the processes I go through and some of the technologies I use that more experienced academics might find useful as well.

If you are an ECA or are interested in developing a teaching strategy, then come along and say hi.

Accountability

Accountability matters. It’s important to be able to demonstrate progress towards goals for two reasons:

  1. If people can see what your goals are, they are in a better position to advise and/or help
  2. If you publish your progress publicly, it can act as a motivating factor for completion

I’ve added a section to this blog called “project dashboards“. This is where I put the details of the the current projects that I’m working on and how far much progress I’ve made towards completing them. I’ve added a menu item to the top of this site so that anyone who wants to can see how I’m travelling. The idea that others can see at any time where I am at reminds me to keep focussed and keep moving forward.

Feel free to have a look.
