Learning Innovation Teaching Enhancement (LITE) Teams
LITE teams provide systematic, collaborative learning and teaching support for your school, department or faculty. We use a project management process to support learning and teaching enhancement work that is prioritised by your faculty in a given calendar year. LITE support teams are made up of staff from the Academic Services Division. Support team members are selected for LITE team projects on the basis of identified project aims and outcomes.
What we offer
LITE teams support program, discipline or degree level learning and teaching enhancement. Support may include a combination of the following:
• Digital and media upgrade to align your program, discipline or degree with good practice online learning principles
• Desktop reviews
• Mapping and alignment of programs and degrees
• Curriculum review, planning, design and development, including support for accreditation and re-accreditation
• Digital media design and development to support student learning in courses within a degree or program.
The Urban and Regional Planning project is an example of a LITE team project that incorporates many of these elements.
How LITE teams work
LITE support teams work collaboratively with you and your faculty colleagues on a learning and teaching enhancement project. The support team is led by an Academic Lead from Learning and Teaching support. Your faculty team members are led by a nominated Faculty Lead. Each is responsible for coordinating their colleagues and ensuring that work progresses from their own side.
How to obtain LITE team support
Learning, Teaching and Quality sends out a call to faculties for Expressions of Interest at the start of each calendar year. You can request LITE team support through your faculty, school or department learning and teaching representative, or contact us directly to help you with this process at LITETeams@usq.edu.au, or contact LITE teams coordinator, Dr Sara Hammer, at email@example.com.
