Wed, 2017-11-15
13:00 to 14:00
This seminar will be presented by Emeritus Professor Moragh Paxton, who works part-time in CHED as a Senior Scholar in projects aimed at strengthening research capacity in educational development practice within the faculty. Her research focuses on a range of academic literacies used at various levels in higher education.

Secondly, the presentation will consider the collaborative and cross disciplinary nature of CHED research and the value of acknowledging and learning from the contributions that scholars from diverse disciplines bring to the scholarship of teaching and learning.
