It seems that preparation for the start of Semester 2 filled a lot of colleagues’ mid-year break, so we have had numerous requests for an extension to I-MELT short paper submission deadline.
The Models of Engaged Learning and Teaching (MELT), which inform the conference, include:
- Research Skill Development framework
- Work Skill Development framework
- Optimising Problem Solving Pentagon
- Clinical Reflection Skills framework
- Your own version, in keeping with the parameters of MELT www.melt.edu.au
For those who submitted on time, we are still planning to have peer reviewers’ comments back to you by the 24th August, so that you can plan your travel and accommodation accordingly.
As I-MELT is 11-13 December, accommodation is at a premium; conference rates are currently available on the website www.i-melt.edu.au
For those who submit by 14 August, you should hear about outcomes for your paper by 14 September.
Short papers submitted to date include a focus on:
Problem Based Learning; Critical Thinking; Work Integrated Learning; Clinical Reasoning; Development of the research skills of Pacific People’s, refugees in Australia, English Learners in Pakistan; RSD for addressing Equity Gaps; Enhancing Maths learning and problem solving; First year transitions; Masters programs and MBAs; Integrated Online Reports; RSD Communities of Practice; Research Training; and Experiential Writing.
Some accepted short papers will be invited to submit a full paper for a Special Issue of the JUTLP. There is also a separate call for EoIs http://ro.uow.edu.au/jutlp/latestnews.html .
We hope to receive your submission
