Computer aided feedback and assessment system
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.

Building a network of academics who use, contribute to and disseminate, an online, cost-effective histology learning and teaching resource
Online Assessment Feedback as an Instument of Reflective Learning Practice in Human Biology
The project team developed an online assessment system for the improvement of evaluation of Human Biology students’ higher level learning and skill development. The project team sought to address the challenge of teaching large classes, by developing a system which will provide a more sophisticated online dialogue with students and improved individual feedback mechanisms. The assessment system extends the aspects of Human Biology that can be assessed online (including laboratory exercises); provides analytical tools (including sets of exemplars and remedial materials); administers richer, more analytical feedback; and embeds reflective practice and self-performance assessment into the feedback component of the online assessment system. The project team have collaborated with partner institutions who have implemented the online assessment tool, in an effort to share evaluation and feedback and make improvements to the system.
Production of a prototype online leadership learning tool and system for Australia’s universities
This project provides a university-specific option for systematically and proactively addressing the leadership succession crisis faced by Australian and international universities. It shows how the active, situated, experiential, 'just-in-time' and 'just-for-me' approaches to learning, development and support (known to optimise university student engagement and retention), can be applied to the selection and support if its leaders. The Online Leadership Learning System (OLLS) allows access to practical strategies which experienced leaders in different roles have found helped them to perform effectively.

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.
Physclips - multi-level, multi-media resources for teaching first year university physics
Despite its key position as an enabling discipline, physics content in school and university curricula is decreasing at an alarming rate. There is a real need for essential physics principles to be made widely available to an increasingly diverse group of students and academics. The Physclips package provides an excellent resource that specifically fills this critical gap. This is a very visual, engaging and easy to use introductory series into major physics principles. It takes an unashamedly rigorous approach. One of the outstanding features is the links to explain in an integrated manner, the mathematical principles supporting the physics. Other key features are the use of tutorials and animations. There is a very strong pedagogical foundation. For example, the authors have taken into account cognitive load theory, the use of narration to reinforce the animation and current web design approaches to produce this very sophisticated tool. The modules go into a good level of depth and detail and are designed such that they can be done at an individual’s own pace. This resource will be of use to anyone who wants and alternative platform to learn about the basics of physics and can be used either to support physics classes or to provide refresher or learning activities. Potential users include university and later year school students as well as teacher and academics who would like to refresh their knowledge. From a pedagogical perspective, these clips also act as excellent examples of how physics can be taught in an approachable and engaging manner. This is a user friendly interface that loads quickly and is readily navigable. It is also released through Creative Commons so there are no fees associated with its use. The videos require a Flash player. The clips currently cover Mechanics, Waves and Sound, Electricity and Magnetism. It is not clear whether further modules are planned. There are many physics videos and online resources available on the internet, but these Physclips packages are of the highest standard and will retain their relevance for many years to come.
Building and evaluating a collaborative learning kit for open and flexible delivery of human biology to distance students
Developing and implementing a flexible web-based teaching/learning environment across an entire academic organisational unit
This is a final report for a 1997 National Teaching Development Grant (Organisational) funded by the Committee for University Teaching and Staff Development. The report details the School of Education project background, aims and objectives, and provides justification and educational rationale for the project's development. A website link is included for viewing resources produced during the project.
