The Guidelines describe what staff need to know and do to embrace Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) in their teaching practice. They outline key principles and clarify the intentions of each, along with their implications for practice. While not exhaustive, these guidelines aim to initiate discussion, collaboration and sharing among academic staff, in key learning areas.

The Guidelines were developed as a learning for life project through a wide consultative process that included key learning and teaching stakeholders such as faculties, library, ACU IT, eLearning LTC and Students Learning and Teaching. The guidelines were endorsed by Academic Board in December 2015.
