Best to use the chat to ask questions in the first instance but there'll be opportunities to open up the mike later.
Denise Wood

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.
Philip Kerr
27:55
I have a very traditional view of the university of the 20th century (and for a couple of centuries ealier). Research-focused.
Kelly Linden
30:01
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.
Gregory Auhl
30:44
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'
Philip Kerr
31:25
It is the adminstration that I find nearly intolerable. Takes way too much time.
Kelly Linden
33:00
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.
Philip Kerr
33:13
I am wanting to be engaged in all 5 areas of the CS scholarly environment model.
Sid Parissi
33:26
The difficulty I find is being expected to do SoTL in EDRS, but not having any workload allocated to research. Makes it hard.
Philip Kerr
35:21
@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?
Sergio Moroni
36:01
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
Philip Kerr
36:03
Sure ... accountability is important!
Philip Kerr
37:03
I struggle to be a teacher!
Celia Connor
37:23
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?
Kelly Linden
38:12
@Sergio, the workload discussion needs to be with your HoS.
Jalal Jazayeri
38:45
we are not teachers Phil Socrates is!
Philip Kerr
39:45
Oh Jalal! The socratic teaching method is probably long out of favour! (BUT mybe I am wrong).
Celia Connor
40:03
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.
Philip Kerr
40:27
I am with @Celia!
Sid Parissi
40:31
@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.
Nidhish Francis
40:39
is there a template to write that reflective piece, given that there is no workload allocated to this
Sergio Moroni
40:56
@Kelly, Thanks. HoS is for a surprise!
Kelly Linden
41:54
@Nidhish, the reflective piece is due late next year, so we will have resources available for then. A template is a great idea.
Tracey Parnell
42:34
Is this a separate reflection to our reflection in the EDRS paperwork?
Geoffrey Burrows
42:38
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?
Clare Singh
42:38
Are there resources available to assist me navigating CRO?
Philip Kerr
42:39
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.
Amanda Shepherd
44:00
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
Amanda Shepherd
44:31
Clare - there is a CRO library guide and some help videos which we will touch on towards the end of the sesion
Philip Kerr
46:42
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.
Amanda Shepherd
47:24
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
Amanda Shepherd
48:01
If you log in to ORCID you should be able to adjust your emails from there
Shokoofeh Shamsi
48:20
Is BEST network available from 2021 onward? if not what other options in that line exist?
Kerstin McPherson
48:20
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 ?
Raquel Butler
48:28
Is smart sparrow being ceased this year through CSU?
Philip Kerr
48:30
@Amanda, there appears to be so much activity in my case. Redundancy?
Kelly Linden
48:50
@Raquel, yes unfortunately. h5p now has adaptive feedback available
Kelly Linden
49:24
@Tracey, there are 3 steps
Amanda Shepherd
49:25
@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
Raquel Butler
49:32
Thanks @kelly
Philip Kerr
50:01
Thanks @Amanda!
Kelly Linden
51:09
@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
Warwick Baines
51:55
@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
Celia Connor
52:47
You can email all of your evidence to CRO and they will add it in to your profile.
Kerstin McPherson
53:11
So take a screenshot of all the H5p things created this year and write a reflection on what and why it was done ?
Warwick Baines
53:23
@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
Amanda Shepherd
53:48
@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
Tracey Parnell
55:07
Thanks.
Kerstin McPherson
55:08
H5P is fun and really easy to set up
Celia Connor
55:58
Yes I appreciate that Amanda
Kelly Linden
56:00
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
Sergio Moroni
01:02:51
How would you determine what is enough to fulfil this new admin requirement?And who is meant to do it?
Warwick Baines
01:04:34
As you can see the reflection doesn't need to be huge Denise will step 3 some brief prompting questions
Kelly Linden
01:05:40
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
Amanda Shepherd
01:06:45
Example reflection in CRO: https://researchoutput.csu.edu.au/en/activities/smart-environment-how-smart-you-can-really-make-it
Amanda Shepherd
01:07:19
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
Shokoofeh Shamsi
01:08:20
thanks Denise and team. I have to go to another meeting
Sid Parissi
01:09:04
Thanks. Can we have access to the slides, please?
Kelly Linden
01:09:35
@Sid, I will ask Denise to post them on the PD calendar: https://www.smore.com/w6zr2-professional-learning
Warwick Baines
01:11:14
@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
Noelia Roman
01:11:54
thank you everyone.
Oliver Villar
01:11:55
So in a nutshell, this exercise is about how our research/scholarly activities can inform our teaching/learning experience?
Warwick Baines
01:12:15
@Oliver spot on :)
Annabel Matheson
01:12:42
will the recording be available to review as we do this?
Marissa
01:12:52
Thank you!
Lisa Speedie
01:13:02

Thanks everyone
Jennifer Manning
01:16:18
Is this rigor and process required of all academics?? or just those in the research space?
Philip Kerr
01:16:57
I am finding keeping up with the documentation that is the killer.
Amanda Shepherd
01:19:49
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
