e-Teaching Leadership: Planning and Implementing a Benefits-Oriented Costs Model for Technology Enhanced Learning (ALTC Funded project 2009-2011 $220,000)

Project lead

Professor Belinda Tynan: University of New England

Project partners and team

  • Professor Yoni Ryan: Australian Catholic University
  • Professor Alan Smith: University of Southern Queensland
  • Dr Leone Hinton: Central Queensland University

Overview and Scope

This project seeks to assess the full costs and benefits of online teaching, specifically via development of appropriate methodologies for within-institution costing of online teaching, and the implications of online teaching for staff workloads. On this basis, the project will provide leadership by working with Schools and Course Teams within the four participating universities to plan and implement strategies for a prospective rather than retrospective cost-benefit model, which can enable innovators to plan and understand the relationship between the expected learning benefits and the likely teaching costs and will be the first Australian study based on 21st century learning modes.
