Originally a pandemic project, SoTL Walk connects RMIT staff with colleagues around the world, providing a time and space for us to unite and immerse ourselves in conversation about teaching and learning. As we journey through the next phase of pandemic life, join us each month as we explore new themes. All you need to do is set aside an hour in your schedule, get yourself outside for a walk and share your reflections.

We’re extending our walking ‘week’ this month to accommodate the Easter break (1-9 April) and give you every opportunity to take part! So, whether you prefer to walk during work time or as part of your vacation adventures, you can set aside an hour in your diary and join the conversation.
WALK: Get outside and go for a 30 minute walk. Take something with you to record your experience – either a phone/camera or a notepad and pencil (for noting and sketching).
THINK: Whilst you are walking, think about the following provocation: The Hunt for Teaching Eggcellence!
Have you made a discovery – tips, tools, delicious treasures – this year that you’d like to share with others? Where did you find them? Maybe you gamify your syllabus to make things more fun for your students? Or are you are on a quest to find something that will help you solve a problem or issue on your course? Are you a puzzler, a hunter, or a feaster? Eggstra points this month for seasonal puns and creative metaphoring!
SHARE: When you return from your walk, share your reflections online with others. Respond to their ideas too! Include an image (a photo, video or sketch) and some words which explain your thoughts. There are two options for sharing:
- Twitter – use the hashtag #sotlwalk
- Padlet – Go To Padlet (or click below to post straight to the April 21 wall)
