D-Cubed Dissemination Project InDesign Resources
Building capacity among emerging occupational therapy academic leaders in curriculum renewal and evaluation at UQ and nationally
The Good Practice Guides serve as a quick reference guide for those undertaking curriculum design, renewal, review, and evaluation activities. Although developed for use within occupational therapy, the key principles described in the Guides have relevance for other health professions and curriculum development and renewal more broadly. Cases accompany many of these Good Practice Guides.
Curriculum and pedagogic bases for effectively integrating practice-based experiences
Teaching standards framework project
Tribes and cultures: frameworks for shared language and intent to cost-effectively improve learning outcomes
This project aims to facilitate the construction of effective electronic learning systems by investigating the domain-specific language used in their development by university lecturers, instructional designers, educationalists and IT specialists. Project outcomes include: an interactive glossary outlining the shared language and the language conflicts of the stakeholder groups; a pedagogical design framework, which specifies the communication processes between the design, implementation and user partners; an annotated bibliography; and a project website.
A Review of the Dissemination Strategies used by Projects Funded by the ALTC Grants Scheme
This project investigated the effectiveness of dissemination for ALTC Grants Scheme projects in the period 2006 to 2009. The Final Report outlines a new approach to dissemination that aims to increase opportunities for achieving productive change in learning and teaching and a new dissemination framework is presented.
The practitioner focused D-Cubed Guide explores the nature and purpose of dissemination, persents a range of effective dissemination activities, and provides examples of good practice. Resources from the Guide are also presented separately.
Outcomes-based planning, graduated descriptors and quality indicators for pharmacy experiential placements
Outcomes from the project include: seventeen experiential learning and assessment tasks published within an online central repository website, the development and trialling of a competency graduated descriptors tool, and a quality indicators framework indicating stakeholder responsibilities and pre-placement during placement and post placement aspects. The online repository is available at the project website.
Using threshold concepts to generate a new understanding of teaching and learning biology
Threshold concepts are concepts central to the mastery of a specific discipline. The project team created a generic model for using these concepts to explore and reflect on student misconceptions and the teaching of troublesome knowledge for use by teachers in biology. Student understanding of the concepts was tested and interventions designed to help improve understanding. A biology teaching package was created along with a generic teaching model and guidelines to assist learning. Project publications and resources are available at the project website.
Assessing and improving spatial ability for design-based disciplines utilising online systems
An online psychometric test of spatial ability (the 3D Ability test) was developed specifically for design-based disciplines. A series of online interactive 3D learning tasks designed to improve spatial skills are also provided. The learning tasks include remediation options for poor performers and purpose-designed gender neutral activities to address the gender bias in spatial performance. The test and 3D learning tasks are available on the project website.
Library and information science education 2.0: guiding principles and models of best practice
Moderation for fair assessment in transnational learning and teaching
The project has documented moderation approaches that are potentially examples of good practice: structured and frequent communication, continuity in staffing to build relationships, use of marking guides, and the development of shared understandings around assessment. The TNE Assessment Moderation Toolkit, designed for involving the whole teaching team including partner organisation staff in assessment moderation practices, is available at the project website.
Learning in Networks of Knowledge: improving student outcomes using Web 2.0 concepts and a knowledge-networking approach
The Learning in Networks of Knowledge (LINK) Project explored and identified Web 2.0 applications and tools that can contributed to innovative and agile teaching and learning approaches centred on knowledge production in a networked environment. These approaches and a wide range of Web 2.0 applications were tested within an applied research setting in the Department of Internet Studies at Curtin University. Pedagogical challenges involved the development of authentic learning experiences and assessment tasks, while providing effective cognitive scaffolding within which learning could occur. The project website provides examples, guidance material, publications, tools and resources and should be read with the report.
A pro-active approach to addressing student learning diversity in Engineering Mechanics
Enhancing student learning in the workplace through developing the leadership capabilities of clinical supervisors in the nursing discipline
This project aimed to build the leadership capacity of clinical supervisors in the nursing discipline by developing, implementing and systematically embedding a leadership model in the structure and practice of student supervision. The Leadership in Clinical Education (LaCE) program consisted of two structured workshops complemented by individual personal development projects undertaken by participants. A website providing access to a wide variety of information and other learning resources was developed.
Peer review of online learning and teaching
The project developed an open-source, web enabled peer review tool (PROTL). The PROTL system incorporates banks of standards-based criteria for use in peer review, explanations of the meaning of these criteria, exemplars, and an underlying database that can record peer review results and make them available for promotion or awards. The project website provides resources such as an online manual, detailed guides, tutorials and features of the PROTL system, case studies and publications.
Peer review in online and blended learning environments
This project sought to develop, implement and evaluate a scholarly framework, processes and resources for peer review of learning and teaching in online and blended learning environments. Specific issues relating to online and blended learning environments were identified as well as the need for formative feedback and professional development. Workshop materials, case studies, and an annotated bibliography are among the resources on the project website.
Diagnostic assessment for biological sciences – development of a concept inventory
The project team developed a set of key concepts which underpin undergraduate students’ understanding of the molecular world, and converted these into a web-based assessment tool – the concept inventory – that tests these concepts. The inventory is intended to influence pedagogical practice and knowledge and can be used by educators from a range of disciplines. Additional resources for teachers and students are available from the website.
The appendices contain: a concept inventory designed to diagnose students’ understanding of fundamental concepts in chemistry and biology; an analysis of the key concepts underlying the inventory; a framework of ‘big conceptual ideas’ for educators developing curricula in biochemistry; and a teacher resource package.
Leading rich media implementation collaboratively: mobilising international, national and business expertise
This project provides frameworks for decision-making about the use of rich media technologies in learning, teaching, administration and research. The project website contains advice for professional development, information about rich media technologies, case studies, references and publications.
New Media Resources for Indigenous Researcher Training
This fellowship stimulates Indigenous research students and their supervisors to consider how new media forms of dissemination, such as image/sound, film, exhibition and digital media, may form culturally appropriate alternatives or adjuncts to the linear, written thesis form. The website explores concepts associated with alternative dissemination and provides resources, exemplars and more ideas.
