Mind the gap: Developing a digital repository of resources to support reflective teaching and learning
Photo: Southern Hub Staff Developers. May 2010
This project aims to develop an open, collaborative wiki that identifies and annotates video resources that can be used to support, guide and enhance teaching in adult learning contexts of Aotearoa/New Zealand:
The collaborative approach to this project will serve to further develop a community of practice (CPO) amongst its creators - people interested in improving teaching and learning.

How to contribute to the project
- Make yourself familiar with the project wiki: http://mindthegap2011.wikispaces.com
- Identify a video resource that can be used to support teaching practice, for example:
- an example of evidence-based teaching practice
- an example of poor teaching practice that can be used to stimulate discussion
- a presentation by key/international educator about what makes good teaching practice
- students talking about what engages them.
- Post the video and information about the video on the project wiki:
- You may choose a video is available on a public website such as YouTube. Go to the wiki and complete the table as per instructions. Link to the video and explain why you think this is a good resource to support the development of teaching practice.
- If this video is a "private" video that is not accessible on the Internet, please follow the instructions on how to upload a file onto the wiki: How do I upload files? Upload the video and explain why you think this is a good resource to support the development of teaching practice.
Things to consider when uploading the video
- Please be mindful of copyright when uploading your video resource. All videos will be accessible by the general public, so please make sure you do not add a video that has an "all rights reserved" copyright.
- Please do not upload a video that advertises services or products.
- If the video you wish to upload is more than 10mb, please contact Sarah Stewart
What happens next
Once the project is complete, you will be contacted and asked if you will take part in a survey that will be designed to find out what you think about the wiki and the video resources.
