The Facilitator Guide focuses on the processes used by those developing academic leadership programs and includes information about conducting a 360° survey feedback process, conducting leadership workshops, embedding academic leadership within a university, developing Personal Action Plans, and issues that may be encountered. The Guide draws upon information developed in the projects, 'Improving the Leadership Capability of Academic Coordinators in Postgraduate and Undergraduate Programs in Business' and 'Academic Leadership: Fundamental Building Blocks'.

University of South Australia

The overall goal of this project was to develop the capacity of academic developers to build leadership capacity in their respective universities, in particular at the level of front-line staff, such as academic program directors, who often deal directly with students. This report describes the provision of leadership development opportunities for these groups during two workshops using the Integrated Competing Values Framework leadership model. As part of the action learning approach adopted, participants designed and implemented development programs for academics within their institutions. Recommendations for institutions and other resources form part of the report.

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.

E-simulations are capable of immersing learners in ‘authentic’ e-learning environments, providing innovative and valid teaching and assessment that is seamlessly interwoven in the process of skill acquisition and experience transfer. The Resource Guide contributes to the development of the capacities required by educational institutions to design, develop, implement, evaluate and research the impacts of e-Simulations. The project website provides additional supporting documents and useful links.

Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education

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.
