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.

The University of Queensland

The University of Queensland has demonstrated that student learning is a priority in a variety of ways. The primary goal is to fully develop, rigorously test int eh field, thoroughly evaluate and disseminate widely a new design framework. The project will involve the design, demonstration and evaluation of three distinct types of learning environment using this unified approach that have been pioneered at the University. At the completion of this project, there will be at least three new learning spaces - one library, one collaborative learning centre and one advanced concept teaching space. These spaces will embody new ways of learning, new ways to use space and next generation technology. They will be exemplars at the very leading edge of world-wide learning practice. Teh major transferable outcome of the project will be the new design framework based on the pedagogy-space-technology nexus.
