Teaching and Learning symposium

Pride in the Humanities

The Division of Humanities Teaching and Learning Symposium

Tuesday 15 October 2019

Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking, and Creativity: These are the fundamental characteristics that our students gain from learning in the Humanities. Let’s celebrate the ways we prepare our students for the future. We know our students face a rapidly changing future, but we can assure them that the skills and knowledge gained in the Humanities prepare them for that journey.

Come and celebrate with us the varied and dynamic ways that we teach in the Humanities. Share your own expertise, gather ideas from others, and create new opportunities.

The symposium will conclude with the annual awarding of the Division’s Teaching Awards.
