Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the philosophy and approach underlying the newly founded Caledonian Academy at Glasgow Caledonian University, which aims to tie researchon learning into development of learning and teaching practice at Glasgow Caledonian in aclose synergy. Two recent research projects illustrate the approach we are taking: theModels of Practice (Mod4L) project has looked at representational issues surrounding thesharing and reuse of learning designs, while the Community Dimensions of Learning Object Repositories (CDLOR) has looked at the socio-cultural, organisational and pedagogic contexts and needs of the potential user communities of repositories. Both these projectshave been based on the philosophy that, if sustainable e-learning is to be embedded in practice, then practicing teachers need to be involved at every stage of development.
