Digital Futures Project
The Australian National University (ANU) , University of Southern Queensland (USQ), and the University of South Australia (UniSA) are collaborating on a $9M Digital Futures Project. The project aims to research social and policy challenges in boosting participation in higher education through technology rich learning environments. This part of the federal Government's Collaborative Research Networks (CRN) program, which aims to boost research at small regional universities by teaming them with large city ones. This project will research Mobility, Openness and Digital Communities. ANUand USQ previously collaborated on an Engineering Hubs and Spokes Project for teaching undergraduates using blended learning. ANU and USQ have an alliance for teaching and research. Currently I am studying Research-Led Education via a program at ANU, including courses provided by USQ.
