TQR Project Palm
Your project has been included in this problem based action
learning model for semester 1 2010
Across the TQR campuses there are more than 40 people and
teams who are working on reinvigorating their current work
practices in the areas of e-learning, assessment and
These people are from more than 20 industry training areas
and are working with colleagues across the TQR campuses
by connecting and collaborating across Institute locations.
What you have done!
1. You should now have met with your project facilitator and
completed the action plan and obtained your managers
2. It is also a good idea to have completed the relevant PD
documentation used in your Institute and filed this with your HR
department (attaching your Project PALM action plan to this
form) this will then record this PD on your Aurion profile
3. If you are claiming money against this PD activity, there should
also be a casual contract set up with your manager so that you
can claim these PD funds on completion of the project
4. Started the project PALM action plan activities based on your
April, May June to do list

Project PALM team to all TQR staff over the next couple of
months that could also be useful for you to attend. E.g

your project aims
