Last week I asked for information about the email list UNILEARN to help a
staff member in Malaysia. Bronwyn Ellis kindly provided it. For those
interested in subscribing send a message to <Majordomo at uws.edu.au> with the
following command in the body of your email message:
The aim of unilearn is to provide a forum for discussion of language and
learning issues in tertiary education. These issues include but are not
* tertiary literacy and oracy,
* teaching students from language backgrounds other than English,
* assessment of academic language skills,
* modes of teaching and learning, including individual assistance, peer
mentoring, credit and non-credit language-focused courses, and
collaboration with faculties,
* flexible teaching and learning.
Unilearn contributors include teachers employed as language or literacy
specialists as well as faculty staff with an interest in these areas. Most
members of the list are teaching in Australian and New Zealand
universities, but contributions are welcomed from all parts of the world.
This is an on-line publication which exists to stimulate the sharing of
ideas, practices and news about learning and teaching in higher education.
Issue 3 looked at the Teaching Research Nexus while Issue 4 due in April
will look at Assessment Issues in higher education.
