8 CRICOS Provider No 00025B OVERVIEW Working with TEDI Writing submissions – process and product Collating supporting material

9 WORKING WITH TEDI What you can expect from usHow you can get the most out of the support we provide Administrative support for the submission process (incl. surveys) Pre-writing meeting before you commit to a definite approach Provision of: Guidelines Resources e.g. templates, ‘lost’ TEVAL/SECaT reports, exemplars Feedback on drafts from allocated TEDI academic – usually tracked changes and comments (we do not write/rewrite your submission) Copy editing of written submission and other assistance with preparation of supporting materials Note administration information and enter key dates in your diary Try to find time to meet with allocated TEDI academic early in the process Follow guidelines (ALTC and UQ) Read exemplars to see how others have captured reader attention, used evidence, established a personal voice Use the templates provided Consider feedback carefully Label files (e.g. name & date) to avoid confusion among different versions Seek evaluations or graphic design assistance as early as possible CRICOS Provider No 00025B

10 WRITING SUBMISSIONS- PROCESS Ensure you are familiar with ALTC requirements – they do change from year to year – and use TEDI template Consider alternative approaches to those used for your successful UQ submission Talk before you write – ask close colleagues and Head of School or Program Coordinator for their opinion on your contribution to teaching or on the value of the program Set aside time to write to ensure you meet deadlines – it does take time Collect evidence as you go – don’t wait until the end When you have a draft – get feedback from a close colleague and from someone outside your discipline to ‘roadtest’ it for jargon and clarity of message CRICOS Provider No 00025B

11 KEEP THE READERIN MIND... The reader is: –unlikely to know you or your discipline –required to read a large number of submissions –not guaranteed to read the submission in conjunction with the supporting materials –in need of your assistance to be clear about your claim to the award and be convinced of its merit. You (not the reader) are the one to gain most benefit from the award outcome so you (not the reader) are the one who has to do most of the work!!!!! CRICOS Provider No 00025B

12 WRITING SUBMISSIONS - PRODUCT Synopsis – tight focus on the overall message and allusion to category, selection criteria and type of evidence to be provided Overview (optional for APEL) – your chance to grab (or lose) reader attention: Clear alignment with message in synopsis. Clear reference to category, selection criteria and type of evidence to be provided. Statement addressing selection criteria – introduce message in opening paragraph and use rest of the section to provide detail and evidence (not new claims). Reflect language of criterion (and category APEL): use signposts (e.g. subheadings, criteria language) to guide the reader. Optional Conclusion – opportunity to summarise overall message with reference to ALL criteria. CRICOS Provider No 00025B

13 SUPPORTING TEACHING MATERIALS Use template Check suggestions listed in TEDI guidelines This is not “Written Submission Part B” – use contrasting material – photos, sample tasks or activities, URL links etc Collect as you write – don’t wait till the end Make material as reader-friendly as possible: –cross reference throughout written submission – be consistent (e.g....... and developed a range of authentic assessment tasks “Supporting material 4”) –use the “Contents” section of the Supporting Materials template to provide an overview of what is included –use descriptive names for both the contents page and as captions for the material included (e.g. “Supporting Material 4: Examples of authentic assessment tasks developed for ABCD1234”) CRICOS Provider No 00025B

14 HOW TO AVOID SUCCESS.... Produce a ‘mega-list’ of achievements without actually tying them together into a central, persistent message ‘Dump’ evidence throughout the submission and leave the reader to interpret it ‘Scatter’ support material without indicating its relevance Use a narrow range of evidence sources (e.g. students only) or types (e.g. survey ratings only) Be modest (e.g. passive voice) Be immodest (e.g. extravagant and unjustifiable claims) Be vague - so general that a reader has no idea what you and the students actually do Gush!
