Professional learning at a distance with ANU Coffee Courses
21 September 2017, 2.00–3.00pm (AEST)
Does your organisation struggle to deliver relevant and effective professional development to your staff? Find out about the ‘Coffee Courses’ approach being used at ANU in our next webinar.
Coffee Courses is an online, self-paced and fully open model of staff training called ‘Coffee Courses’ which was introduced at the Australian National University to deal with the challenges often faced by many institutions in delivering professional development, including low attendance at face-to- face training, time constraints, and staff located off campus. The Coffee Course model relies on regular, bite-sized training in practical teaching strategies and pedagogies, delivered using a public blog so that anyone canparticipate. Each blog post takes only 10 minutes to complete and involves reflection and activities for participants. It is designed for peer learning, where teaching staff can share ideas and engage in conversations with colleagues.
