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.
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.

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.

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.
