Safeguarding Student Learning Engagement

Overview of Project

The project, which commenced in 2010, was originally funded by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council (ALTC) as a Competitive Grant. The research is now overseen by the Office for Learning and Teaching within the Australian Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education.

The purpose of the project is to lead the design of a suite of resources to guide good practice consistent with the notions of equity and social justice, for monitoring student learning engagement (MSLE).

The Project concluded  formal activities at the end of 2012.  Project dissemination activities will include both academic and professional staff and will take the form of conference presentations, national workshop activities and journal articles.  This website serves as a repository for the project’s social justice framework and social justice principles, the good practice guidelines and the collected exemplars of good practice in safeguarding and monitoring student learning engagement.
