Projects, collaborations, exchanges, etc

One of the key IBILTA drivers is the desire to collaborate, to share ideas and to work on solving common problems. We currently have groups working on:

  • How to teach STEM on the Block: Dom Caridi from Victoria University is leading a group exploring the unique challenges involved in the teaching of STEM in condensed formats. Email Dom to find out  how you can get involved.

  • Inclusivity: The Embracing Global Diversity Workshop was a collaboration led by Loretta Konjarski (VU), with colleagues Katie McCrae (UWM), Michelle Andersen (UWM), Janet Young (VU) and Michelle Prawer (VU).

Together the team worked to develop a one hour zoom workshop where students from VU and UMW came together to discuss and explore Inclusion and Diversity from each country's perspective.  

The aims of the workshop were to:

  • Introduce  students to peers from across the world, their culture, living conditions and issues

  • Explore three diversity topics that are common to both groups and identify commonalities and differences

  • Examine future focused solutions and directions for the three diversity topics

  • The workshop was a success with many students enjoying the 1ession and giving great feedback. There are plans to run the session again in the future.

  • Exchanges: Christian Gilde from Montana Western University and Alan McWilliams from Victoria University have collaborated on a program of virtual exchange, teaching into and observing each classes and creating common learning experiences for their cohorts. Find out more about this from Alan and Christian
