Well, here we are again. 2018 has come around much faster than you probably expected, and suddenly we’re back in the thick of preparing for the upcoming session. The Futures team hopes you’ve had a relaxing break over the holidays, and we’re looking forward to seeing many of you back in the LX.lab this session and bringing you more learning and teaching stories. Here are a few things to remember if you get into a tight spot this session, or if you just want to stay in the loop.

Help for learning and teaching

The LX.lab is here for anyone who’s getting ready to teach in the Autumn session. Our drop-in sessions are running every day between 11 and 1, so make sure to come and pay us a visit if you’ve got a question. We’ll also be continuing with our events program, so keep an eye out for helpful workshops and training sessions (especially those on the new Assessment Policy).

More coming up at Futures

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be focusing on three themes for the first half of this year. While we’ll continue to provide advice and workshops on a broad range of topics, we’ll also be incorporating sustainability, social media and assessment into our program of events in the LX.lab and our usual blog content, so make sure to stay tuned for special events in these subject areas. If you’re not subscribed to our Weekly Digest already, head over and register to stay in the loop.

How to get involved

We’ve been lucky to host a variety of different events with the UTS learning and teaching community in the past year. If you’d like to get involved this year, consider holding an event in the LX.lab – head over to this post for instructions and let us know what you’ve got in mind.

And an even faster, easier way to get involved with the community is to write a post for Futures. We’re interested in all aspects of learning and teaching, and welcome all topics far and wide, so send them on through to futures.team@uts.edu.au.
