Building a culture of innovation at La Trobe

Congratulations to Birgit Loch and her team for winning the best concise paper award at ASCILITE earlier this week for their paper ‘Building a culture of innovation in learning and teaching technologies through an innovators group’, outlining the achievements of the SHE Innovators Group.

A pre-print version of the paper is available at the following link:

Building a culture of innovation in learning and teaching technologies through an innovators group

The Innovators Group was set up by Birgit in 2018, comprising academics interested in trying out and adopting new technologies in their teaching, sharing what they have learnt with their colleagues, and encouraging others to innovate – all in the name of improving the student experience. The group is regularly consulted when it comes to improving the University’s learning environment, e.g. in the course of LMS upgrades or setting AV standards. The group includes reps from Education Services and Information Services.

The Innovators meet every six weeks throughout the year. For more information, or if you are interested in joining, please contact Carolyn Bell, Robert Ross or Andrew McDonald.
