We’re @Vconnecting from #HERDSA17 on June 29. Sydney Australia.

We’re excited to be Virtually Connecting from the Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia (HERDSA) 40th Annual conference. The theme for the conference is Curriculum Transformation. Effective curriculum transformation is seen to optimise the curriculum as a framework for student learning and experience rather than as simply an organising framework for disciplinary knowledge. It puts quality at the centre of this process and ensures support for staff in curriculum development and innovative teaching practice. See the Conference website for more detail.

We are connecting with Professor Eeva Leinonen. Chie Adachi and Colin Simpson are our onsite buddies for this session and Wendy Taleo is the virtual buddy.

Professor Leinonen is the Vice Chancellor of Murdoch University and has an academic background in linguistics and psychology and has extensive experience in higher education in the United Kingdom, Europe and internationally.
