Embracing the move to online teaching and relishing the new opportunities that comes with it, is Adelaide Dental School lecturer, Clinton Kempster. We learnt a lot from Clinton about e-learning, the importance of regular check-ins and the strength of our University community in our latest edition of Connected Conversations.
The ‘new normal’ is here as many of us continue to work and learn from home. Limited face-to-face teaching has commenced but campus life as we once knew it is still a little way off. Today, we launch our second series of Connected Conversations with sixth year medical student, Kate Sharley. We recently chatted with Kate about how she’s adapted to the learning online; if she’s feeling more (or less) productive and what it’s like being back on placement.
What happens when you love your work and you’re asked to stay home? You adapt and start planning for the future! We spoke to senior lecturer, Dr Danijela Menicanin to learn about the innovation in teaching and student engagement she’s working on, in our latest edition of Connected Conversations.
For some, this current moment in time has had some unexpected positives. For lecturer and researcher, Dr Kent Algate, that has been seeing his newborn son smile for the first time while also pushing himself to become a better teacher for his students now and in the future.
When your job centres on student experience, how do you adapt to the current temporary changes to University life? We dialled in with Rosie Bond to find out how she is continuing to support our students while maintaining her own routine, in the next instalment of Connected Conversations.
The current changes to university life have impacted all students, possibly none more than first year international students settling into a brand-new city and new course. We chatted with flatmates Amy Chou and Jenny Won about adjusting expectations and their weekly take away ritual!
In the new instalment of our Connected Conversations series, first-year medical student Aidan Barbo shares how he broke some bad habits and adjusted to a new routine. He has also been keeping a journal to document his experience.
Our Connected Conversations series continues with Bec Hanna who shares some insight on balancing work at the University of Adelaide with her passion projects while also studying a Bachelor of Health and Medical Science.
We spoke to first year health and medical sciences student Roy Chan about learning at his own pace, staying focused and learning how to grow a garden in our next instalment of Connected Conversations.
