Questions to Considerthroughout Webinar How do we recognise Good Practice in technologically-enhanced learning and teaching? How do we communicate/disseminate Good Practice in technologically-enhanced learning and teaching? How do we integrate Good Practice into learning and teaching?
Number of GPRs? How many Good Practice Reports have been developed? A. 3 B. 5 C. 8 D. 11 Show of hands for your response
ALTC Good Practice Reports 11 GPRs were commissioned to provide a summative evaluation of useful outcomes and good practices from the 264 ALTC projects and 52 ALTC fellowships on key topics in higher education (as at 1st Dec 2010). The GPRs were also designed to include recommendations of areas in which further work or development were appropriate.
Reports Commissioned Assessment of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) students (2011) Assuring graduate outcomes (2011) Blended learning (2011) Curriculum renewal (2011) Learning and teaching across cultures (2011)
Reports (Cont.) Revitalising the academic workforce (2012) Supporting students‟ transition into higher education (2011) Work integrated learning (2011) Technology enhanced learning and teaching (2011)
Question Have you read or engaged with the Technology-Enhanced Learning and Teaching Report prior to participating in this webinar? Please select either: Yes OR No
Technology-Enhanced Learningand Teaching Report Covered 25 complete projects (including three fellowships) and 8 ongoing projects (including one fellowship) in the area of technology- enhanced learning and teaching. For example: Learning to teach online (LTTO): developing high-quality video and text resources to help educators teach online (CG9-1091) Virtual microscopy for enhancing learning and teaching (CG7-398)
Defining Technology-EnhancedLearning and Teaching Our perspective of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) and teaching aligned with Laurillard, Oliver, Wasson & Hoppe (2009) who suggest that the “role of technology [is] to enable new types of learning experiences and to enrich existing learning scenarios” (p. 289). In addition, they also suggest that “interactive and cooperative digital media have an inherent educational value as a new means of intellectual expression” and creativity (p. 289).
Outcomes 1-41. A focus on learning design allows academics tomodel and share good practice in learning and teaching2. Authentic learning provides a means of engagingstudents through all aspects of curricula, subjects,activities and assessment3. Successful academic development focuses onengaging academics over sustained periods of timethrough action learning cycles and the provision ofleadership development opportunities4. Engaging teaching approaches are key to studentlearning
Outcomes 5-7 5. Technology-enhanced assessment provides flexible approaches for academics to provide feedback to students 6. Integrating technology-enhanced learning and teaching strategies across curriculum, subjects, activities and assessment results in major benefits to the discipline 7. Knowledge and resource sharing are central to a vibrant community of practice
Outcomes 8-10 8. Academics require sophisticated online teaching strategies to effectively teach in technology-enhanced higher education environments 9. Academics need a knowledge of multi- literacies to teach effectively in contemporary technology-enhanced higher education 10. Exemplar projects focused on multiple outcomes across curricula integration, sustainable initiatives, academic development
We considered the followingquestion… How can I find a project that is relevant to the specific areas of TEL that I am interested in without having to read through every summary?

Exemplar Projects Exemplar projects focused on multiple outcomes across curricula integration, sustainable initiatives, academic development and community engagement.
Recommendations 1. Senior management support 2. Sustainability of initiatives 3. Curriculum-wide approaches 4. Update websites & repositories 5. Rigorous evaluation 6. Consider relevant assessment 7. Academic development 8. Share learning designs 9. Support multi-literacies 10. Postgraduate student involvement

About the Networkwww.nataonthenet.blogspot.com
GPR ‘E’ Resources Good Practice Report ‘E’ Resource To develop e-resources from the GPR‟s that can be used asynchronously by the Australasian Tertiary sector; To publicise the existence of the Good Practice Report and their themes more widely; To enhance understandings of the value and lessons that the Good Practice Reports afford; To enhance the dissemination of the Good Practice Reports.
Revisiting the Initial Questions How do we recognise Good Practice in technologically-enhanced learning and teaching? How do we communicate/disseminate Good Practice in technologically-enhanced learning and teaching? How do we integrate Good Practice into learning and teaching?
What can I do to help integrateGood Practice into learning and teaching?
