Learning community and teaching team

Deakin and learning design is about collaboration.

Digital learning initiatives require a range of experts and professionals to come together.

As part of the delivery in a collaborative teaching environment, different people take on the roles of mentors and educators over time. This course is one of these examples.

Meet the team

One of your Lead Educators for this course is Dr Lisa Milne. Lisa is a Lecturer, Teaching Capability, in the Deakin Learning Futures team. Her research interests include work integrated learning, educational policy and the first year experience in higher education.

Joining you in conversation will also be Dr Chie Adachi, Director, Digital Learning at Deakin University. Throughout the course, keep a look out for Chie’s ‘behind the scenes’ stories.

You will also have Dr Andy Wear, Joan Sutherland and Dr Francesca Bussey as members of your teaching team.

If you haven’t already, make sure you follow Lisa and the team for the latest course updates, feedback and discussions.

As we’ll soon learn, social learning plays a vital role in getting the most out of your online learning, so you might also like to join in on conversations and help create a community of practice by using #FLdigitallearning on social media.
