Development of a computer-generated digital patient for teaching and assessment in pharmacy
The project team developed and tested a computer-generated virtual patient for pharmacy students to practise and improve their communication, diagnostic and management skills for minor illnesses. The software developed allows interaction between the student and the simulated patient, and captures and analyses aspects of the interaction including the questions asked, the diagnosis and management chosen by the student. Feedback is provided to the student.

Using cost-effective multimedia to create engaging learning experiences in law and other disciplines
This fellowship addresses the needs of (1) final year law students studying ethics and (2) law academics and other interested educators in higher education wishing to use ICT to create engaging learning environments for their students but lacking the capacity to do so. A blended learning program was developed including instruction on theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of legal ethics, together with Entry into Valhalla, an online suite of modules featuring self-test quizzes and machinima scenarios depicting legal dilemmas confronting the members of a fictional law firm. The project website includes a detailed resources manual and instructional videos.

ePortfolio use by university students in Australia: Informing excellence in policy and practice
Stage one of the project explored the current scope of national and international ePortfolio practice in higher education in Australia.
