The Centre for Tertiary Teaching & Learning (CeTTL) offers services to all University staff and students.
The Centre for Tertiary Teaching & Learning (CeTTL) in the Office of the Vice Chancellor, offers three services within the University: Learning Development, Teaching Development (including evaluations), and Technology Enhanced Learning. CeTTL promotes, facilitates, and supports the current activities associated with each of these groups, but will also support and develop new opportunities for effectively integrating their activities. CeTTL provides research-informed leadership in tertiary teaching and learning both internally and externally.
Teaching Development works with staff to develop pedagogical knowledge and extend teaching skills, and raises the profile of tertiary teaching through academic conversations. It provides a range of support activities for tertiary teaching, including for example, workshops, individual consultancy, observation and feedback, and advice and assistance with evaluation methodologies to improve teaching and assessment practice. This service, in conjunction with the Faculty of Education, offers the Postgraduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching, a practice-focussed qualification.
The evaluation function, which is also part of this service, helps staff to interpret and use student feedback data to improve teaching.
Technology Enhanced Learning supports staff and students engagement with digital technologies, and manages Moodle, Panopto, Mahara, Adobe Connect, Turnitin, and Google Apps for Education.
By adopting a digital literacy focus, TEL enables staff to become confident and agile users of digital technologies in their own context. We all have the capability to participate in the digital world and through workshops, seminars and one-to-one work, TEL helps the learning and development of all staff to ensure we are well equipped for the digital age.
Learning Development provides academic and maths literacy and learning skills for University students at all levels,
fostering independent and critical thinking for lifelong learning.
The service uses a number of teaching approaches, including individual appointments, workshops, and technology-mediated resources to enhance student learning development both on campus and at a distance.
In 2010 the Learning Development team won a Faculty of Education Teaching Excellence Award, in recognition of its work with students.
