The Learning and Teaching induction program focuses on the needs of permanent, sessional and contract staff new to VU.
The program comprises:
- a three hour face-to-face session exploring Block Mode's teaching, marking and assessment, and the culture and philosophy that underpins it
- for sessional staff, a one-and-a-half hour online module
- for permanent and contract staff, Mandatory Compliance Training Requirements (PDF; requires login).
The face-to-face sessions are offered in Orientation week and regularly throughout the year.
The session is facilitated by teaching academics and allows participants to establish connections, learn about students and student learning at VU, and engage with some practical strategies that can enhance learning and teaching.
