Partnerships and collaboration: Connecting areas of expertise and experience
MetadataShow full item record
Recent developments to adopt and embed technology into the design of learning and teaching across the higher education sector in Australia have required institutional responses founded in collaborative, cross-boundary, and interdisciplinary practices. Dynamic partnerships are at the heart of Griffith University’s Arts, Education and Law Group’s strategy to address the challenging landscape within which our academic and general/professional staff work. This paper reports on the approaches and collaborative work strategies and practices established by the Group’s Blended Learning Advisor (BLA) and Curriculum Consultant (CC) as they work with academics in the learning and teaching space. Partnerships have been a critical component of the leadership culture developed with the Group learning and teaching executive and committee; school learning and teaching committees; program teams/convenor; course teams/convenor; and individual academics during one-to-one consults. The approach adopted by the BLA and CC is to work with academic and general/professional staff to build capability; help staff find better ways to use relevant and appropriate learning and teaching IT; design solutions to tasks that can achieve multiple ends and deliver informed outcomes based on good practice. This is achieved because of the nature of the partnerships and the way the roles have developed over time.
