Innovations in Criminology Teaching and Learning Workshop

The study of criminology within higher education has grown significantly in recent times, producing large numbers of graduates. Australian criminology students have varied career trajectories which include government organisation, private companies, non-governmental organisations/third sector employers and academia.

However, how are Criminology teaching staff tackling increased student numbers, varied career trajectories of graduates and different expectations of students? Are we are providing graduates with the skills to tackle the most pressing criminological issues?Are students still engaged in class? Can we utilise new technologies in our teaching? This workshop aims to bring together a variety of Criminology scholars for a workshop to discuss the latest innovations in teaching Criminology. The workshop will involve short presentations or current teaching and learning research and an opportunity for feedback, questions and collaboration. The event will result in an edited collection addressing innovations in teaching and learning in Australia.

Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers will be particularly encouraged to contribute to the workshop. Where possible, more experienced scholars will be matched up with PGs/ECRs to collaborate and advise on possible chapters for the edited collection.
