TELedvisors SIG webinar: Enabling HyFlex teaching work behind the scenes
Date and time: Thursday 29 July, 12 noon AEST
Concurrent synchronous face-to-face and online teaching (commonly called HyFlex but going by many names) has exploded this year as institutions continue to adapt to COVID-19. It represents one of the most significant changes to learning and teaching practice since flipped classrooms and as we approach the start of a new semester, it seems timely to talk about the different ways that HyFlex is supported by edvisors in institutions and the lessons that have been learned so far.
Join us as academic developers, learning designer and education technologist share their stories.
- Courtney Shalavin, Sandris Zeviots and Elaine Huber, three members of the Sydney Uni Business Co-design team will talk to us about their hybrid spaces and will share top tips (or lessons learned?) from their staff support sessions including some design examples.
- Michael Crocco (Learning Designer in the Faculty of Engineering, Monash University) will talk about guiding team work and applied learning across the digital divide while maintaining equity for remote and on-campus students.
- Kym Schutz (Educational Technologist at the University of Adelaide) is supporting the University of Adelaide Mixed Cohort Learning pilot in his role as an educational technologist in a number of ways. These includes testing the new bespoke technologies as well as supporting teacher-student logistics and teaching methodologies in this environment.

Reminder: Business Education SIG webinar: To use live clients or not to use live clients? Insights from educators, students and live clients
Date and time: 27 July @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm AEST | 2pm Singapore/Hong Kong | 6pm Auckland | Other time zones
The ASCILITE Business Education SIG is delighted to invite you to their webinar in which Ms Audrea Warner (University of Auckland) and a panel of students will share insights from their experience working with live clients on a Masters level marketing course. This webinar will provide perspectives from not only the educator but also students and live clients. It will discuss the benefits and disadvantages of group work involving a live client. In this form of student enhanced learning, students are challenged to actively synthesize and integrate what they read, bridging the gap between theoretical material learnt in the course and creating practical integrated marketing communication campaigns. The webinar will also consider student perspectives through a panel of past alumni, who have completed the ‘live client group project’, explore what the presenter has learnt as an educator from using this form of assessment and provide feedback from past live clients.
Audrea Warner is a Professional Teaching Fellow in the Graduate School of Management, University of Auckland. She has over 17 years of teaching experience in Organisational Behaviour, Human Resource Management and Marketing. Audrea feels a strong sense of responsibility to engage, enlighten, and empower her students both now and for the future. She wants her students to learn from the past, be proactive in the present and work for a better tomorrow. She is co-leading ASCILITE’s Business Education SIG.
