Online course on teaching for engaged enquiry

The ITL and Sydney eLearning have collaborated in the development of an online short course for academic staff on engaged enquiry. The course is designed for anyone interested in curriculum renewal using engaged enquiry as described in the current University strategic plan. The course comprises 5 modules, involves consideration of your own teaching context and can be completed in 12-15 hours.

Most of the recent ideas in teaching can be organized around the concept of engaged enquiry (for teachers and students) and those ideas are the focus of the content of this course. It draws on the student learning research, principles of good teaching, and examples of engaged enquiry from within the University of Sydney (from Strategic Teaching Enhancement Projects (STEPs) and other curriculum initiatives) as well as from the many developments now reported in the literature.
