Summary
The challenge for this project was to develop national capacity and networking in cross-disciplinary mathematics and statistics learning support to enhance student learning and confidence. The project brought together knowledge, awareness, understanding and resources to build leadership capacity and a national community of practice. The project audited current services and needs for all Australian universities; initiated a national community of practice to foster leadership development; identified current resources, databases and arrangements for sharing resources and collaboration on future developments; benchmarked Australian practices; and developed guidelines of best practice.
Outcome
The project has produced an account and guide for the university sector on the need for, and provision of, learning support in mathematics and statistics. The information, data, and input obtained through the project were brought together and analysed, and a guide written. The guide includes history, analysis of the nature of and need for learning support, synthesis of the findings of the project, and recommendations for the provision of support
