About the Author

Dr Benson is a Senior Lecturer in Educational Design and e-Learning at Monash University, Australia. She has an extensive background in adult education, distance education and the use of educational technologies in higher education. She has initiated the design and development of many `workbooks' to support academic professional development workshops on aspects of teaching, and to act as standalone resources for staff. Recent workbooks have included an orientation to educational design and e-learning, and covered specific issues relating to online communication and online assessment. Dr Brack has educational design experience at Melbourne and Deakin Universities in Australia, and currently works at Monash University. She has an academic background in biochemistry and pursued research and teaching in the discipline before becoming increasingly interested in the challenges and theories of teaching and learning. She approaches online technologies from a functional perspective, incorporating social software (blogs, wikis, podcasting, etc.) and using their networking potential where this contributes positively to the learning and teaching experience.
