We would like to invite academics with at least five year’s experience in providing online postgraduate education to participate in a research project titled “Optimising learning activities to increase student engagement with content and enhance retention of online learners in Australian higher education”. We are keen to hear from WIL practitioners who are responding to COVID 19, as well as from others.
