MELT workshops in each state

Would you like graduates of your programs to have developed deep understandings of subject matter and research or problem solving mindedness?

Do you want to foreground critical thinking and use technology to support its development, not have technology drive the agenda?

How can you help students to connect together the skills associated with problem solving, critical thinking, clinical reasoning and researching in ways that enable these skills to mutually reinforce across multiple semesters of a degree?


The MELT workshop on the Models of Engaged Learning and Teaching will help you address these questions. The MELT reflect and are based on organic adaptations of the Research Skill Development (RSD) framework to numerous other models, including the Work Skill Development framework (for WIL) and Optimising Problem Solving pentagon (made by students for students in Engineering). The workshop facilitates the development of your own MELT that fits your context. Join us at one of the state-based events run over the next few months:
