Enthusiastic and engaged teachers continually evaluate and modify aspects of their units in an effort to enhance student learning. This unit affords participants the opportunity to explore and improve their teaching practices by adopting an action learning model. Focusing on teaching and learning issues arising from HED5043 Contemporary issues in business education, participants will be required to apply a teaching intervention (or interventions) to their curricula (for example a technological intervention arising from Module 5) and to critically evaluate its effectiveness, and to instigate further changes and evaluation.


The learning objectives associated with this unit are to:

  1. apply an action learning model to enhance teaching practice
  2. identify, justify and implement an appropriate teaching or learning intervention/s
  3. use appropriate methods of evaluation of a teaching or learning intervention/s
  4. reflect critically on the teaching intervention/s using the education literature
  5. identify areas of teaching or learning that require improvement
  6. critically reflect on the findings in relation to the intervention/s and devise a plan for further improvement.
