The Inspired Learning Initiative (ILI) has been an important catalyst for kick starting Blended Learning and the wider discussion about digital uplift at UNSW Art & Design (Watson, 2019), however PVCE funding was limited to 40 courses only. This recently completed SEIF Project* aimed to expand the impact and capability of staff and faculty well beyond these selected courses by developing a cohesive Blended Learning Strategy that informed all operational areas of UNSW Art & Design including executive, administration, teaching and resources. The masterplan, guidelines and templates serve as an impetus for widespread culture change across all areas to facilitate the uptake of digital pedagogies to be effective, efficient, scalable and sustainable while improving the quality, personalisation and flexibility of the student learning experience.
