Summer School Forum 2014

Federation University Australia was proud to support the Summer School Forum which was held at Ballarat Lodge on Thursday 6 and Friday 7 February, 2014.

This event is part of the Regional Partnership Facilitation Fund (RPFF) project in which over 160 participants from the University's six partner institutes are currently studying the Graduate Certificate in Education (Tertiary Teaching) (GCETT).

The theme of the forum was 'Learning Innovations'. It was organised to give the participants an opportunity to complete the second course in their two year program. The opening address was provided by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Learning & Quality), Professor Marcia Devlin, and there were a number of interesting keynote speakers, as well as interactive workshops and presentations which showcased the participants' projects.

In addition, a Pre-forum workshop was held on Wednesday 5 February and the topic was "Flow theory and optimal learning experiences". The guest speaker at the Forum dinner was Mr Steve Moneghetti and the evening began with a welcome from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Engagement), Professor Todd Walker.
