Over the last 12 months, I have been reflecting on my teaching practice as I developed my portfolio for my Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia (HERDSA) Fellowship application. Under the guidance of my mentor, Lee Partridge, I addressed the seven Fellowship criteria providing evidence of and future development plans each:
Criterion 1: Educational practice demonstrates a concern for learning
Criterion 2: Assessment encourages and supports learning
Criterion 3: The needs of different participants are recognised and they are supported in their learning and development
Criterion 4: The wider departmental, institutional and/or community context for learning is recognised and built upon in improving educational practice
Criterion 5: Curricula are planned and innovation is introduced to enhance learning
Criterion 6: Critical reflection to improve educational practice takes place in the light of evidence obtained from different types of evaluation
Criterion 7: Research and scholarship (disciplinary and pedagogical) are used to enhance participants’ learning
Several weeks after submission, I received email stating that my portfolio was accepted w/ no edits or revisions required! I’m very much Looking forward to being officially welcomed in the HERDSA Fellowship community at HERDSA annual conference in Brisbane!

I am thrilled to share that I have been invited to deliver my presentation ‘Innovating academic feedback with screen-casted audio/video feedback design’ as part of Advance HE’s Online Curriculum Symposium on 14 July alongside other academics.
This discussion aims to contribute to the on-going conversations surrounding innovations within higher education, particularly as it relates to the digital learning environment. The discussion will strive to support the benefits of focused, clear and personal feedback whilst promoting academic staff to demonstrate their commitment to engaged learning, innovative and scholarly teaching and reaching more students by improving access and flexibility.
