This study investigated the relationships between academic success, language and academic learning strategies used, and affective learning variables. As a result of findings from the study, a multi-media resource providing advice on those strategies and beliefs about learning was developed for students and staff.
The Resource Library contains a collection of higher education learning and teaching materials flowing from projects funded by the Commonwealth of Australia including those from the Australian Learning and Teaching Council.

Finding Common Ground: enhancing interaction between domestic and international students
The Final Report presents an investigation of how peer interaction can be designed and used, within the teaching and learning environment, to engage domestic and international students. A key outcome was the development of a six-dimensional conceptual frameworkwhich underpins the resources produced for the project. Potential obstacles to student interaction, from both teaching and learning perspectives, are identified. A DVD, Finding Common Ground, a student flyer, and background paper are available from the project website.
This guide describes the dimensions of the Interaction for Learning Framework: planning interaction, creating environments for interaction, supporting interaction, engaging with subject knowledge, developing reflexive processes, and fostering communities of learners. The background paper, Finding common ground: Challenges and opportunities for enhancing interaction between domestic and international students, is included in the Guide.

Development and evaluation of resources to enhance skills in higher degree research supervision in an intercultural context
This project addressed postgraduate research supervision in a cross-cultural context from the point of view of both supervisor and candidate, and from the perspective of what institutions can do to support candidates and supervisors. Based on the research data, five different types of resources were developed: ten short video clips with supporting transcripts; 17 written scenarios with key ideas and suggested discussion questions; three documents outlining strategies; a checklist to determine departmental and faculty readiness; and an annotated bibliography with over 100 entries. Resources may be found on the project website and are freely available for use by both candidates and supervisors.
