13:30 Framing learning: Developing students’ core proficiencies and attributes via blended learning and digital technologies

Monash University supports 67,000 students across Australia, Malaysia, South Africa and Italy. The presentation will focus on the University’s Better Teaching Better Learning agenda which challenges current approaches to teaching and learning by developing a fit-for-purpose, outward-looking curriculum. It is supported by a multifaceted mode of delivery; flexible and purposeful learning spaces; and an innovative array of blended learning technologies in order to create an exemplary student centred learning experience. The paper will also provide insights into Monash’s College campus pathway programmes for international students which has embedded technology and employability skills into its blended learning programs. For the Diplomas, English language proficiency is also embedded. The joint presentation case study will focus on:
  • Student experiences: creating blended learning environments to promote active learning
  • Curriculum design and delivery: embedding practices and strategies
  • Pedagogy, learning and teaching practice: mapping for reflection, goal setting and innovation
  • Attaining English language proficiency
  • Professional learning: sharing skillsets and blended learning techniques
