dehub nurtures scholarship in ODL by
- promoting research activity and outcomes to influence practice and inform decision-making, strategic directions and policy trends
- evaluating and researching all aspects of e-learning, including policies and legislative frameworks, educational systems and software, quality assurance mechanisms, learner/teacher experiences and practices, and theoretical and pedagogical considerations
- providing resources and services to support ODE educators
- maintaining a global network of ODE scholars and other stakeholders
Under a grant from the Diversity and Structural Adjustment Fund awarded to the UNE through the Australian Government Department of industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE), the DEHub Project originally established a distance education hub in late 2008. In that project (which finished in March 2013), UNE partnered with CQUniversity (CQU), the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), Charles Sturt University (CSU) and Massey University in selected research activities, forming a consortium of Australia and New Zealand’s largest and leading distance education providers.
