The Learning and Teaching Network comprises associate deans, deputy deans, and coordinators who are responsible for learning and teaching in our member business schools.
Network functions and presentations provide opportunities for professional development and the sharing of resources and ideas about good learning and teaching practice.
Network members meet face-to-face twice each year. They have focused recently on academic standards; benchmarking; quality assurance; accreditation; and strategies for encouraging, measuring and rewarding good teaching. See events for more details.
Network members play a key strategic role in enabling a national, collaborative approach to systemic change, which will improve learning and teaching in Australian business higher education.
The Network leads ABDC responses to important learning and teaching pronouncements by major higher education regulatory bodies like the Higher Education Standards Panel, Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency and the Office for Learning and Teaching. Network members, who often collaborate on projects, have been particularly successful in receiving national grants and engaging professional employer bodies to work with them.
Since the Learning and Teaching Network was established in 2004, grants from the former Office for Learning and Teaching and its predecessor have supported initiatives, which have included a distinguished visiting scholars program and the development of academic standards across many business disciplines.
