UNE Instructional Design and Technology (IDAT) Research Group

An Open Learning Opportunity Partnership - Est. 2014

Our team strives to provide research to inform the development of frameworks to empower Early Childhood, K-12, university and corporate educators to design, develop and deliver interactive distance education programs.

Learning Designer of the Month - no Photoshop!

We undertake foundational research in the design, sequencing and evaluation of e-learning interactions, with the overarching goal of informing policy and practice.

We approach our research using mix-method designs, experimental studies and the application of conventional and novel learning analytic techniques. 

Our research demonstrates how contemporary and emerging technologies can be used to: promote student learning; facilitate effective teaching practice; map discrete learning processes; develop responsive pedagogy; and enhance learning, teaching and assessment.
