Summers, L. (Ed.). (1995). A focus on learning : quality in teaching & learning : the proceedings of the Teaching & Learning Forum, Edith Cowan University, Perth, February 1995. Perth, Australia: Edith Cowan University.


These papers represent the proceedings of the fourth Teaching and Learning Forum conducted in Perth from February 7-9, 1995. Curtin University hosted the first two Forums and we at Edith Cowan University the third and fourth. In 1996 the honour (and the hard work) transfers to Murdoch.

The Forum's objectives were:

• To bring together people in higher education who are interested in practical teaching issues (Lecturers, managers, administrators, students, support, general and technical staff).

• To share ideas, information and practices in a variety of mutually supportive, friendly and co-operative ways.

• To celebrate quality in teaching and learning and raise the status of teaching and learning in tertiary institutions.

We believe that these were achieved.

This set of proceedings is not organised around a set of sub themes, but rather is presented in alphabetical order with outlines of workshops and short presentations taking their place alongside research papers - as was the case at the Forum.
