Best to use the chat to ask questions in the first instance but there'll be opportunities to open up the mike later.
please mute microphones during the presentation. Thank you.
In my naive view TEQSA, and their requirements and emphasis on SoTL, has somewhat gutted the HIGHER education arm of the university. It means universities become teaching-focused institutions.
I have a very traditional view of the university of the 20th century (and for a couple of centuries ealier). Research-focused.
Hi Phil, the majority of academics research in the field that they teach. Your research is then informing your teaching and will therefore be a VERY appropriate artefact.
I think Boyer would agree, but the fruits of that research need to then be drawn into our teaching so that it remains current - 'cutting edge'. Its reflecting on how you do this and incorporate into your teaching that can make it 'scholarly'
It is the adminstration that I find nearly intolerable. Takes way too much time.
I understand Phil. It is so difficult, but TEQSA have told us that we must be able to report on this, so we must have all artefacts/reflections in one place.
I am wanting to be engaged in all 5 areas of the CS scholarly environment model.
The difficulty I find is being expected to do SoTL in EDRS, but not having any workload allocated to research. Makes it hard.
@Kelly, MY fundamental question then is ... Why is TEQSA the standard? Who gave them the right? Why has this become mandatory? Who decided that TEQSA is the paradigm?
HiIt seems to me this will require a lot of admin? time.How many hrs are we been given to do this?Where from will the time be allocated to do this?Admin time?Teaching time?Thanks
Sure ... accountability is important!
I struggle to be a teacher!
Yes, I agree this this is really important but we do need to have time allocated to it....where is this time allocated in the workloads?
@Sergio, the workload discussion needs to be with your HoS.
we are not teachers Phil Socrates is!
Oh Jalal! The socratic teaching method is probably long out of favour! (BUT mybe I am wrong).
The Head of School must balance the school budget. If this is a CSU requirement the workload allocated should be at a higher level, not the school level.
I am with @Celia!
@Linden - yes, HoS, but if there is no workload allocation given, even after a request, how to then do this....the answer to me was 'well it's up to you' - not good. The reason is: the financial situation does not allow for the workload allocation....very hard.
is there a template to write that reflective piece, given that there is no workload allocated to this
@Kelly, Thanks. HoS is for a surprise!
@Nidhish, the reflective piece is due late next year, so we will have resources available for then. A template is a great idea.
Is this a separate reflection to our reflection in the EDRS paperwork?
It seems like this will result in a marked increase of teaching papers that next to no one will read and no one will ever cite?
Are there resources available to assist me navigating CRO?
Maybe there should be a dediciated officer or two in the research office to gather the papers etc for CRO. I don't get given time to do this. GoogleScholar does a reasonable job.
Philip the Research Office does already complete importing on behalf of staff for any outputs that are indexed in available databases, such as Scopus, Web of Science, Ebsco etc
Clare - there is a CRO library guide and some help videos which we will touch on towards the end of the sesion
Yes @Amanda, I have noticed this. I get loads of emails from ORCID? saying that changes have been made. i have no idea what these all mean.
You can adjust your ORCID notifications. As new information is available in databases your CRO data is updated and this flows across to ORCID, hence the updates
If you log in to ORCID you should be able to adjust your emails from there
Is BEST network available from 2021 onward? if not what other options in that line exist?
Can artefacts be an I2 module - something embedded in the module or do they have to be an external thing like smart sparrow or H5p things ?
Is smart sparrow being ceased this year through CSU?
@Amanda, there appears to be so much activity in my case. Redundancy?
@Raquel, yes unfortunately. h5p now has adaptive feedback available
@Tracey, there are 3 steps
@Philip the default seems to be to let you know about every change. But I can certainly look into that further for you after the session and see what's happening
@Tracey, the 3 steps are: 1) A breif description in your EDRS; 2) an artefact eg journal article, conference paper, CSUedX presentation, blog post etc. and 3) a short reflective piece in CRO to describe how your artefact informed your teaching in 2021
@Kerstin the artefact can be anything that supports the impact that your scholarly activity has had on the learning and teaching experience of your students so even some before and after screenshots of your i2 site and then linked to your reflection would be appropriate
You can email all of your evidence to CRO and they will add it in to your profile.
So take a screenshot of all the H5p things created this year and write a reflection on what and why it was done ?
@Tracey help on this DLT page for the 3 steps with accompanying short videos https://www.csu.edu.au/division/learning-and-teaching/home/Scholarship-Activities/collecting-and-reporting
@Celia yes we do try to assist with data entry where possible but we can't promise we can add everything as it depends on the deadlines we are currently working to within the CRO team, etc
H5P is fun and really easy to set up
Yes I appreciate that Amanda
Thanks Muhammed for the great work. Smart Sparrow will not be available next year (Pearson purchased SS and is not making it availale), however we have a licence for h5p and we will plan to run professional development in the new year. https://h5p.org/branching-scenario
How would you determine what is enough to fulfil this new admin requirement?And who is meant to do it?
As you can see the reflection doesn't need to be huge Denise will step 3 some brief prompting questions
The DLT website has some CRO userguides. All the guides here https://www.csu.edu.au/division/learning-and-teaching/home/Scholarship-Activities/help-with-scholarship
Example reflection in CRO: https://researchoutput.csu.edu.au/en/activities/smart-environment-how-smart-you-can-really-make-it
You can make your reflection public if you wish, but you can definitely also keep it private if you don't wish it to be visible on CRO
thanks Denise and team. I have to go to another meeting
Thanks. Can we have access to the slides, please?
@Sid, I will ask Denise to post them on the PD calendar: https://www.smore.com/w6zr2-professional-learning
@Sid We will also get it up on the scholarship help page https://www.csu.edu.au/division/learning-and-teaching/home/Scholarship-Activities/help-with-scholarship
thank you everyone.
So in a nutshell, this exercise is about how our research/scholarly activities can inform our teaching/learning experience?
@Oliver spot on :)
will the recording be available to review as we do this?
Great presentation team, thank you
@Annabel - yes we will make it available
Thank you team
thank you, explained things well
If you're on probation, does this still apply?
thanks very informative :)
Thanks for a clear explanation
Thank you all, very informative
We'll keep adding to the FAQs https://www.csu.edu.au/division/learning-and-teaching/home/Scholarship-Activities/frequently-asked-questions
Is this rigor and process required of all academics?? or just those in the research space?
I am finding keeping up with the documentation that is the killer.
RPI is having an impact on those in the research space as well though, in terms of meeting minimum expectations moving forward. There's a requirement to capture new information to contribute to overall RPI score so additional burden of data entry there
