Teaching in Semester 2, 2020 – guidance and support 

How can we support student connection, engagement and learning in Semester 2? Based on the Mid-semester 1 survey results and a range of student and staff feedback, we have updated the Teaching guidance with a Teaching support guide for Semester 2. We have also updated advice for assessment in Semester 2. For all recent updates, view the list on the Communications page or contact ITaLI for personalised support.
