Experience of Learning

"...a university experience is much more than just a training ground for employment. ... Students should leave university with more than a degree. They should leave as well-rounded individuals capable of mature and critical thinking with an eye to the future well-being of society."
(Vice-Chancellor UWA, Professor Alan Robson AM)


The University of Western Australia invites you to attend the 15th annual Teaching and Learning Forum. The 2006 Forum will be held February 1st and 2nd at the Crawley campus (map).

The theme for the 2006 Teaching and Learning Forum, Experience of Learning, embraces all that it means to be part of a community of learning. There are multiple perspectives on the Experience of Learning. We no longer confine our thinking about learning to what occurs through classroom interaction between teacher and student. We are all involved in learning and contribute to the learning of others. The "classroom" is no longer four walls and a chalk board.

The Forum welcomes everyone involved in learning and the many environments in which learning occurs – teacher and student, undergraduate and postgraduate, full-time and part-time, academic and support professional, researcher and clinician, within disciplines and across disciplines, the workplace and online, the classroom and the laboratory, the library and in the field, ... ...

The programme is designed to provide a range of opportunities for dialogue about teaching and learning. There will be keynote presentations, panel sessions, paper presentations and workshops and an activity session for posters and demonstrations. There will also be an opportunity to engage in loosely structured dialogue based around a number of current topics in teaching and learning which we are calling Pearls, Piths and Perils.

We aim to make the Teaching and Learning Forum 2006 an Experience of Learning for all!
