The project’s purpose is to further the educational design and dissemination of an online tool to support and facilitate self-and-peer assessment of individual contributions in large group work projects. The online tool supports group work processes through facilitating self-and-peer assessment by providing quantitative and qualitative feedback, evaluation, reflection and review opportunities.
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.

Supporting student peer assessment and review in large groupwork projects
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.

Get Set for Success: Using online self-assessments to motivate first year engineering students to engage in and manage their learning
EngCAT is an online educational resource that enables prospective engineering students to self-test their interest and motivation in engineering and make an informed choice about their career path. The EngCAT website can be used for careers advice – helping prospective students better understand their individual learning approaches, how they work in teams, and whether they have the skills and interest to pursue a career in engineering. This enhanced self-awareness will enable students to seek support where needed and better manage their learning to successfully progress through their program. EngCAT is designed to help the engineering industry attract students who have the required skill sets but may not otherwise have considered a career in engineering

Business education in the 21st century: Examining the antecedents and consequences of student team virtuality
This project investigated the need to train students to be able to work effectively in teams, particularly virtual teams. The project was both research-driven and experience-based and considered the concept of ‘virtuality’ in teaching and learning at university. Virtuality for the purpose of this project refered to online collaboration by team members without the constraints of time and the necessity to be in the same place. The project sought to establish how to:
- design online resources to facilitate implementation of virtual student teams
- select appropriate technologies to support virtual student team activities
- provide online training for staff and students to assess readiness
- enhance the effectiveness of virtual teamwork
- evaluate virtual student team projects in the Australian business education context.

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.
A guide to supervision in social work field education
This guide, based on the masters level online program, is designed for those wanting to learn about the theory and practice of supervising social work students during their field education placement. Four topics cover the nature of social work field education, standards and roles, educational foundations, and phases of student supervision. Questions, exercises and reading reflection segments support the text and other online documents.
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.

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.
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.
