About Associate Professor Gail Wilson

Associate Professor Gail Wilson BA(Hons)(Tor), BEd(Tor), MEd(Macquarie), PhD(Deakin)

Gail is Director, Centre for Teaching and Learning, Southern Cross University (SCU), Australia. She is located at the Gold Coast campus of SCU. Gail is an editor for the UK journal Research in Learning Technology (RLT). She serves on editorial boards for two journals - the Australasian Journal of Educational Technology (AJET), and Research in Learning Technology.  Gail is also a member of HERDSA and ASCILITE in Australia and held a position on the HERDSA Executive from 2005 - 2011. She continues to serve HERDSA as a member of the HERDSA Guides Committee.

Gail was one of three members of the Steering Committee of a large teaching and learning grant funded by the Australian Learning & Teaching Council (ALTC) Preparing Academics to Teach in Higher Education (2010). An extension to this grant funded by the Office of Learning and Teaching (OLT) which focused on the development of online modules for staff who teach in higher education teacher preparation programs (TPPs) was completed in 2012. In 2013 she received another OLT Extension Grant on Peer Review of Teaching in Online and Blended Learning Environments, working with the University of Queensland.

Gail’s current research is focused on online professional learning for teachers in higher education; resource-based learning and user-centred approaches to resource design; and peer review in the context of online and blended learning environments using a conversational approach to giving and receiving feedback between staff.

In her current role at Southern Cross University she is engaged in researching options for using teaching criteria and standards frameworks to support a continuing professional learning scheme for academic staff. Aligned to this is her research interest in credentialing of both formal and informal learning in higher education and online professional learning for academic staff at SCU.
