Are you Interested in Presenting at TLC ANZ 19?


Presenting at the Teaching and Learning Conference ANZ is a chance for you to have a voice amongst your peers. Whether you’re experienced or brand new to presenting, join us to share your challenges from the past or opportunities for the future; we want to hear what you have to say.

This year, we are looking for presentations that fit within six of these themes:

Instructional & Learning Experience Design
Explore methods for ensuring you are building a learning environment that has students at the heart of the design and their learning experience. Critical design considerations like activities, content, assessments, technology, and services all contribute to how learners think, learn and behave.

Using Analytics to Drive Learner Success
You make institutional choices every day that may change the course of a learner’s life. Now, find out how to make data-informed decisions to close achievement gaps and improve student engagement. Learn how different institutions and organisations are leveraging data to drive learner success.

Supporting the Learner Beyond the Classroom & Curriculum
Supporting the student outside of the classroom is critical to an institution’s success. By optimising people and process, institutions can better identify students at risk, increase enrollment, improve retention, and enhance the overall educational journey. Learn how organisations are easing the learner’s responsibilities outside of the classroom through process re-engineering, integrated technology, and nurturing faculty/ staff interactions.

Enhancing the Teaching & Learning Journey
Learners’ expectations are ever-evolving as the world and learning opportunities continue to rapidly change. Share your experiences on what the key challenges facing educators are and the solutions that are resolving and further enhancing the teaching and learning at institutions.

Competency & New Methods of Learning Assessment
As institutions embed more active, authentic and collaborative learning and assessment activities into their courses we see a greater use of the LMS the way it should be used. This theme allows you to share how you use the LMS and associated tools to drive new methods of digital assessment.

Technology Enhanced Learning Architecture & Roadmap
Upgrading enterprise systems, adopting new technologies, or moving to the cloud can be a daunting tasks as you think about change management for educators and learners. See the best practices and tips from other institutions about how they approached these initiatives and improved the teaching and learning experience for their faculty, students, and staff.  It is also an opportunity to review and provide feedback on the latest roadmaps.
