Support services

The Library’s Peer Learning Advisors (PLA) team is dedicated to facilitating the integration of creative technologies within curriculum. Our collaborative approach extends across all academic disciplines and educational contexts, ensuring comprehensive support for students’ diverse learning experiences. 

If you’re seeking integration of creative technologies into curriculum, let us know.

Collaborative projects

We collaborate with educators from various disciplines and educational backgrounds to strengthen the development of Information and Digital Literacy  skills for all students, demonstrating our commitment to graduate excellence. 

Assessment examples

Health communication skills: Podcasting in Nursing

Students acquired podcasting and audio editing skills through interactive workshops led by Peer Learning Advisors (PLAs). These skills were put to the test in group assessments where students utilised our podcasting studios and drew upon the expertise of PLAs to effectively communicate complex health messages to the public. This collaborative assessment enabled students to develop vital health communication and digital literacy skills.

App-design and prototyping in Business

In an existing assessment, students are tasked to resolve a socioeconomic challenge in the SE Asia region.

Students were provided an option to submit questions to a panel, and Peer Learning Advisors assisted students with questions around the use of innovative and creative technologies pertaining to Library Technology Spaces in industry (Razeed et al. 2021).

3D-Printing in Health

Health students were encouraged to evaluate how emerging digital fabrication technologies impact their field. Peer Learning Advisors supported them in acquiring interdisciplinary skills, such as 3D-modelling and digital fabrication, to create innovative solutions for complex challenges in occupational therapy. Furthermore, students studying eHealth had the opportunity to explore novel technologies and reflect on their implications within the realm of eHealth.

Professional Engagement Program in Engineering

To develop cross-disciplinary skills in digital literacy, communication, critical thinking, and problem solving, students can complete experiential hours through workshops and iterative design processes.

Generative AI in Information and Digital Literacy

Staff from the Education Portfolio and the Library with student leaders collaborated to create a resource for students to understand the educational uses and principles of Generative AI. The resource is now publicly available on Canvas.
