Practice Passport

If you work at Unitec in an academic role hopefully you have heard of the Practice Passport. This post is a quick go to list of the main topics. We recommend delivery in programme teams to get the most benefit out of this professional development.

You are required to complete 5 compulsory topics:

  • Active learning and teaching
  • Work-based learning
  • Online/blended learning
  • Matauranga Maori
  • Assessment and feedback

There are also recommended workshops:

  • myPortfolio
  • Moodle
  • Blackboard Collaborate
  • Echo 360
  • Turnitin

These are by no means the definitive list. You are welcome to discuss with Te Puna Ako academic advisors any other professional development topics that might be appropriate for your programme team. Here are some ideas:

  • Flipped learning
  • Group work and peer assessment
  • Embedding literacy and numeracy
  • Student evaluation
  • Integrating and assessing unit standards
  • Using new teaching spaces
  • Success and retention
  • Learning design
  • Designing online learning objects
  • Gamification

The practice passport is a great opportunity to really develop yourself, and your programme team.  We look forward to working with you. Contact us!
