    ADCET Webinar: Mentoring during the Time of COVID

    Over the last few years, a number of universities have implemented specialist peer mentoring programs to support students on the Autism Spectrum with their studies.   While many of us appreciate the positive impact these can have for students on the spectrum, what’s the impact for the mentors?  This webinar draws on the experience of a panel of student mentors from across Australia to explore the personal and potential professional benefits of being a mentor.  Mentors will also share their insights on the impact of COVID-19 on their role and for their mentees, and will offer some suggestions for supporting students on the Autism Spectrum during these times.  When: Wednesday 12 August, 2020.

    Thinking about the students: Three essentials in the move on-line

    As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Australia, universities are racing to convert face-to-face subjects into formats that can be delivered on-line. Staff who already design and teach on-line know full well that “putting a course online” is nowhere as easy as it sounds and can be fraught with problems when done in haste. The generous sharing of good advice from sector experts has been a boon in these turbo-charged endeavours. Technology enhanced learning (TEL) professionals have also formed their own on-line support communities. (March 2020. Campus Morning Mail. Dr Cathy Stone and Dr Nicole Crawford)
