Welcome to CEG

The focus of the Commerce Education Group (CEG) is to:

  • Initiate an educational discourse in the faculty;
  • Nurture collaboration and professional collegiality;
  • Enhance a critical reflective capacity in relation to our teaching;
  • Enhance an environment that will encourage research in relationship to teaching practice

The initiation of CEG was spearheaded with a series of workshops given by Prof. V. Feast from the University of South Australia (January 2001). The structure, outcomes and pedagogy of their Economics and Accounting Department had fundamentally been altered. The workshops engaged with the details regarding the initiatives, as well as creating opportunities for faculty to engage in reflection on their own practice. To sustain this momentum, the notion of CEG was born and has flourished since 2001.

The Commerce Education Group provides a forum for educational discourse within the faculty. This involves an exchange of ideas, experiences, opinions and research. It includes input and debates from various people on a variety of educational topics that pertain to the work in the commerce faculty and the wider university context. It also provides an opportunity for staff to present aspects of their work and to build both a critical self-reflective practice, as well as develop a more collaborative approach to our teaching in the faculty. Presentations take on a range of different forms, both interactive and formal. It is hoped that CEG provides a forum to encourage research, presentation and publication. The group has met approximately every two weeks since 2001.

EVERYONE is welcome to attend! You do not have to be an academic and you dont have to present until you feel you have something to say! You simply need an interest in the teaching and learning environment!
