The Bumpy Road of Collaborative Innovation in Online Delivery: How to Negotiate it?

Atweh, Bill, Shield, Paul G., & Godat, Meredith M. (2005) The Bumpy Road of Collaborative Innovation in Online Delivery: How to Negotiate it? In Beyond Delivery - On Line Teaching Conference, October 2005, Queensland University of Technology - Gardens Point.


The authors were involved in the development, implementation and evaluation of an e-learning based postgraduate unit in the Faculty of Education. The development and delivery took place within the On Line Teaching (OLT) environment at the Queensland University of Technology. One of the main features of the unit is the integration of face-to-face and on-line tutorials that allowed the simultaneous participation by on-campus and external students. The barriers and obstacles encountered from planning, through design to delivery have been documented and critically examined. The obstacles and barriers can be mapped in a problem space bounded by time constraints, level of expertise, resource limitations and paucity of support. Based on this mapping it could be argued the current affordances of the OLT environment and the configuration of the Media Equipped Lecture Theatres (MELTS) and Computer Equipped Classrooms (CECS) may need to be more flexible to allow for this type of development, delivery and pedagogy.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
