- the proposed outcomes and resources for teaching and learning which will be produced by current incomplete ALTC projects and fellowships
- identifies areas in which further work or development are appropriate.
Enhancing student academic writing: developing a booklet of instructional activities and strategies to support lecturers to teach writing in the context of their disciplines
Curriculum specification and support systems for engineering education that address revised qualification standards
Recommendations are made on reducing attrition in areas of admissions processes, curriculum change, bridging pathways, peer-mentoring, and active learning. Other project themes included the development of workshops to support engineering academics, the revision of Engineers Australia‘s competency standards for the three accredited engineering qualifications, and a review of pathways and access to engineering qualifications. Five leaflets address key issues from the report.
Building capacity among emerging occupational therapy academic leaders in curriculum renewal and evaluation at UQ and nationally
The Good Practice Guides serve as a quick reference guide for those undertaking curriculum design, renewal, review, and evaluation activities. Although developed for use within occupational therapy, the key principles described in the Guides have relevance for other health professions and curriculum development and renewal more broadly. Cases accompany many of these Good Practice Guides.
Building academic staff capacity for using eSimulations in professional education for experience transfer
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.
Benchmarking clinical learning in speech pathology to support assessment, discipline standards, teaching innovation and student learning
This project will build the capacity of speech pathology academics to monitor and improve the quality of their teaching and assessment through benchmarking effective strategies for facilitating student learning in the workplace nationally and internationally. Programs will be supported to develop threshold standards of performance that will inform teaching practice within universities. The project also aims to facilitate international benchmarking for the purpose of maintenance of standards and improvement of learning and teaching practices.
Peer Review of Teaching in Australian Higher Education
While there is growing interest in peer review of teaching in the Australian higher education sector, the level of awareness and expertise is variable. Some institutions have established processes in place. At other institutions involvement is variable in approach and tends to be localised to particular faculties or departments. The team believes the challenge in improving the uptake and effectiveness of peer review of teaching is largely a policy one at the level of individual institutions. This project will create a new, easy-to-use set of resources to assist institutions to effectively implement policies and programs for the peer review of teaching. A key feature of this project will be the development of a distinctive approach to peer review of teaching that embodies an Australian conception of the scholarship of teaching and that aligns with existing national initiatives for enhancing learning and teaching in higher education.
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. An analysis of ePortfolio contexts identified government policy, technical standards, academic policy and learning and teaching as contexts where strategies may be employed to support effective practice. The types of ePortfolios used was documented and issues in relation to implementation identified. Additionally, innovative practice in ePortfolio use in higher education was explored and recommendations made to guide policy developments.
The WIL (Work Integrated Learning) Report
The aim of this large-scale scoping study of work integrated learning in higher education was to identify issues and map a broad and growing picture of WIL across Australia and to identify ways of improving the student learning experience in relation to WIL. Evidence highlighted the importance of strong partnerships between stakeholders (students, university academic and professional staff, employers, professional associations, and government) in facilitating effective learning outcomes for students. A set of recommendations (Chapter 1) and an implementation framework (Chapter 9) are project outcomes. Thirty curriculum vignettes, providing a snapshot of a broad range of practices, are available from the website.
