Induction for New Academic Staff
Foundations of Learning and Teaching @JCU
Foundations of Learning and Teaching @JCU is a two-day program for all newly appointed full-time academic staff with teaching responsibilities to be completed as part of employment probation.
The program focuses on essential information about the JCU learning and teaching context; the higher education regulatory environment and internal policy; student and library support services; assessment, moderation and feedback; technology-enabled learning strategies, including use of the learning management system; and evaluation of learning and teaching.
It is delivered by multiple presenters in face-to-face mode on Cairns and Townsville campuses. Staff from other locations please contact Learning, Teaching and Student Engagement to discuss your requirements.

Any new full time academic staff who have been unable to attend the program since commencing teaching duties, are welcome to attend the Sessional Staff Induction in SP2 (as we are not presenting the Foundations program). While this will provide a quick overview of requirements in the short term, it does not substitute for attendance in the full two day program for probation purposes. Therefore staff are required to attend the next Foundations program in January 2019 in addition to the Sessional Staff Induction.
Registrations are now open through My HR Online. Please follow the procedure outlined below, and select the Learning, Teaching & Student Engagement option for your campus.
For catering purposes please register to attend this event. Registration is also required to assist with attendance records and the creation of Certificates of Attendance.
Foundations of Learning and Teaching @JCU workshops aim to provide newly appointed full-time teaching staff with:
- A welcoming introduction to teaching at JCU
- An understanding of the JCU student population and the implications for teaching
- An understanding of teaching roles at JCU
- An awareness of teaching and learning policies at JCU
- Engagement with learning technologies and LearnJCU to enhance student learning
- An introduction to the professional knowledge base for university teaching and learning
- Appropriate engagement with the beginning principles of teaching (including planning, pedagogy and assessment) for their teaching contexts
- Strategies to gather and use information about their own teaching
- The creation of informal networks of support and professional exchange within and across disciplines
- An awareness of promotion pathways through demonstrated teaching excellence
- An awareness of the teaching and learning support available to JCU students and staff
Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop or other mobile device to these sessions. Materials for all sessions will be provided electronically, or by hard copy on request.
Following the workshop, participants will be invited to attend a Networking Breakfast to be held on 22 March, 2019, 7:00 to 8:30 am. Invitations will be forwarded to participants after the workshop, but please note it in your diary.
The Directorate of Learning, Teaching and Student Engagement presents lectures, workshops and symposiums throughout the year. For session details, see Workshops, Events and Registration.
