Educational Innovation Team

The Educational Innovation (EI) team in the DVC (Education) Portfolio works closely with faculties to support the University's ambitions outlined in the 2016–20 Strategic Plan and particularly its vision of a distinctive and reimagined Sydney education and a transformed learning environment. In 2017 and 2018, our key work in delivering this vision include a radically different approach to blended learning on a new learning management, support for staff delivering the novel features of the new curriculum and ensuring educational leaders are recognised and rewarded.

The transformation of the learning experience described in the strategic plan will require innovation, creativity and collaboration in our teaching approaches, blending the best aspects of face-to-face interactivity with engaging and mobile online resources. Increased access to information on student learning and engagement through learning analytics will give us the tools to provide personalised learning and support to students even in the largest classes. The transformation will also need educational design expertise and flexible physical and virtual learning environments built to facilitate these new learning designs and promote collaborative inquiry.

There are many opportunities to get involved and advance your educational skills and career. These include the Strategic Education Grants, our #edtech talks, Week 4 // Open Door and other learning and teaching events as well as our formal professional development programs. Keep informed and connected with other educators and share your ideas through Teaching@Sydney and our vibrant Yammer community.

Join us on 16th August at the Sydney Teaching Colloquium - The Creative Curriculum to hear how educators are bringing the novel features of the re-imagined curriculum to life.
