Effective learning partnerships with colleagues: Emerging modes of staff development at Curtin

This paper presents the evolution of a mixed mode approach to staff development in teaching and learning. The project began with the realisation that staff attendance at solely face to face seminars was problematic-as it can be for students attending traditional classes. With a desire to provide opportunities for staff to experience online learning practices similar to those used with students, staff developers began exploring the use of mixed mode delivery in first semester, 2002. Quantitative and qualitative data revealed a mixed reaction to web-enhanced delivery, and the findings have been used to explore various configurations of mixing technology with the face to face approach. This presentation is a report on experiences and findings so far, and possible future directions.
