Welcome to The Learning Cog; the blog from the Learning Enhancement and Innovation unit. Our blog is a one-stop shop for everything learning and teaching related. As we are strongly focused on collaboration, we want to share our knowledge and expertise. We also want to learn and evolve by tackling learning and teaching challenges with Academics, Professional Staff and Students.
Why ‘The Learning Cog’?
Our blog is called The Learning Cog as this encompasses who we are, what we do and where we are located.
A cog is small but essential to the smooth and seamless operation of a machine. This is how we see ourselves as a small but crucial part in the learning and teaching process at The University of Adelaide. Alongside Academics, we play a support role in creating the best learning outcomes for University of Adelaide students, thus holding up our brand promise of building better graduates.
The Cog, located on level 7 of the Kenneth Wills building is our open plan collaborative space. We welcome Academics, Students and Professional Staff to collaborate with us.
We officially launched our new blog on Wednesday 22nd May in true LEI fashion – with cake! Elektra Walter, Manager of the Project Management team, created cog shaped cakes to celebrate.
Each month we will have an overarching theme relating to learning and teaching at the University of Adelaide. Our aim is to be relevant and topical, bringing as much expertise and best practice advice to help Academics and Students achieve their learning outcomes. At the end of each month, we will be sending out a monthly newsletter called ‘The Learning Cog Bulletin’. This will be filled with helpful resources, latest news and events and learning and teaching tips and tricks.
