What is ED?

Elizabeth Tuckerman
RMIT University

Our brief as members of central support groups was to re-develop the learning and teaching website for RMIT University. Our challenge was to provide a resource that educators would actually want to read, contribute to and enjoy. The result is ED, a unique resource that combines the conventions of a website with those of a magazine.

ED is characterised by its visual appeal and inclusiveness. It offers a different approach to discussion of learning and teaching than other university websites.
