This presentation seeks input into the development of a national online teaching induction program for the Australian sector. The work is part of an Office for Learning and Teaching Fellowship and is a collaboration between 11 institutions, led by Swinburne University. If you have responsibility for teaching staff who are new to teaching, are new to teaching yourself, or are a professional staff member with teaching responsibilities, I would welcome your input into what you believe the program might usefully provide for staff who are ongoing/sessional/contract, staff based on international campuses, professional staff who teach students and research students.
Learning Analytics is touted as being a powerful force for good in education, but asking the right questions of the data and interpreting it with a critical eye are important factors in using it to successfully help teachers to help their students. This panel brings together five people to discuss some ideas in this field and to share some of their hands-on experiences.
Open University Australia (OUA)'s Community of Practice at Swinburne University of Technology has formed a discussion panel to present 'Engaging and supporting online students'.

'Wurundjeri Women and Sport: Aunty Joy Murphy Wandin' is biofilm of Aunty Joy Murphy-Wandin, Wurundjeri Elder. In this film she tells the story of the land itself and how the rivers, creeks and trees are an essential element of the Wurundjeri experience yesterday, today and tomorrow. She describes how women in the past moved on the land, caring for and playing with their children and how much of their work was never-ending but was supported by a sense of play. Her family dedication to sport is shown as an intrinsic part of her life and she tells us that the women played a vital role in supporting the men in VFL and AFL football. Today she recounts how families are brought together by sport and how 3 generations of her family continue the sporting tradition. This film is intended to show the importance of sport to Aboriginal health and well-being, to build respect for Indigenous Australians, particularly the Wurundjeri Nation and to help us all to understand the vital importance of caring for the land itself.
