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

Gail is a member of Southern Cross University's Emeritus Faculty.
Gail served as Director, Centre for Teaching and Learning, Southern Cross University from 2013-2017.
Gail is an editor for the UK journal Research in Learning Technology (RLT). She is also a member of ASCILITE, HERDSA, ODLAA and ISSOTL. Gail held a position on the HERDSA Executive from 2005 - 2011 and continues to serve on 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. She is currently leading a CAULLT-funded project to develop a peer review of assessment resource to support the use of the Peer Review of Assessment Portal.
Gail's research is focused on online professional learning for teachers in higher education; resource-based learning; and peer review in the context of online and blended learning environments using a conversational approach to giving and receiving feedback between staff. She is keenly interested in teachers as designers, and ways in which learning design principles and good practice can be shared with academics. She led the Assessment@SCU project which supports the University's new Assessment Policy.
Gail was a member of the recently-completed Global Partnerships for Academic Teaching Excellence Project led by the Queensland University of Technology and mentored three Chinese students as they developed their applications for Associate Fellow/Fellow HEA.
