Last week, Cornelia Koch attended the 2018 Conference of the Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia (HERDSA). The conference theme was ‘(Re)Valuing Higher Education’. Cornelia participated in a pre-conference workshop on ‘Lights, Camera, Action: Best Practice in Creating Instructor-Made Videos (IMVs)’, to inform her use of videos in blended learning in her undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. Adelaide Law School PhD Student Patricia Carlisle also participated in this workshop.
At the conference Cornelia presented a paper entitled ‘Using Innovation to Deliver Pedagogical Value in the Age of the Economically Efficient Corporate University – Adelaide’s Flipped and Inquiring Public Law Curriculum’, discussing Matthew Stubbs’s and Cornelia’s joint project on redesigning the Principles of Public Law course and incorporating flipped classroom lectures as well as a small group inquiry-learning experience (SGDE). The paper received useful feedback from an interested audience that will be used to further refine the course design.
