The battle for the brains

The battle for the brains | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
With new funding laws meaning more competition, the Australian student marketing war to attract students is waging on both home ground and overseas.

 

In WA, Curtin’s brand is all about the future. The Curtin line, Make Tomorrow Better, promotes it as a future thinker. The campaign launch included a TVC featuring students with light bulbs instead of heads, and the line ‘you can always spot the brightest minds’.

 

“It positioned Curtin as innovative, and we needed to relate that back to what it means for students,” says Carriero. “Its message is about making your future, your career and your community better.”

 

Yole, whose agency The Brand Agency was behind Make Tomorrow Better, says the brand campaign “reflects the philosophy of Curtin – they are looking for people who can bring ideas into reality”.

Teaching and the future in universities

Teaching and the future in universities | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Australian universities need to be able to choose where they wish to place themselves on the continuum between teaching and research, between transmitting known knowledge and discovering the unknown, between short-term applied and long-term basic research, between cultivating students’ character and deepening their specific expertise, as well as between building international scholarly reputation and building national identity, between serving the professions as they exist and changing their social shape, between partnering with the community and standing apart as its independent critic.

Targeted, timely, learning support for international students: One Australian university’s approach | Baird | Journal of Learning Design

Targeted, timely, learning support for international students: One Australian university’s approach | Baird | Journal of Learning Design | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Abstract

This paper documents the approach taken by an Australian University to enhance student study skills, development of academic language, and writing skills. The Curtin Business School (CBS) has the only fully faculty-based student learning support centre at Curtin University in Western Australia. Called the CBS Communication Skills Centre (CSC) it has seven academic staff charged with enhancing learning outcomes, intercultural communication and study proficiency for a diverse student cohort having a large proportion of international students. Described here is the CSC approach to using a suite of targeted services and collaborative practices in multiple academic disciplines to assist transnational learning. Challenges faced by international students using learning support services, and by staff designing and delivering those services in an Australian University form part of this discussion.

Making the Most of Lectures : Academic Skills Centre : University of Canberra

Making the Most of Lectures : Academic Skills Centre : University of Canberra | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Students vary greatly in what they get out of lectures. Largely, it’s a question of ‘what you get out depends on what you put in’. The more actively you listen, the better. There are some practical techniques, such as preparing for the lecture ahead of time, taking notes and following up on your notes after the lecture which can help you to get much the most out of your lectures. But first it’s a good idea to consider why universities continue the tradition of giving lectures.
