Institute of Teaching and Learning

Data collection methods

The outcomes of this project are based on progressively collected data where the findings of each phase were used to inform and shape the subsequent phases. In the initial stage the project team undertook a literature review that informed the direction and approach taken for the remainder of the project. The second phase involved interviews with 37 key stakeholders in learning and teaching from 6 Australian universities in the first quarter of 2008. In 2008 an online survey of Centre Directors was administered to 38 institutions and this was followed by 10 focus group discussions held at a representative sample of Australian institutions. The project's findings were also informed by a workshop on how Teaching and Learning Centres can effectively contribute to enhancing the student learning experience and outcomes, conducted by 8 members of the project team at the Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia (HERDSA) international conference in 2009.
