Interactive Case Study (Lindy Chamberlain)

Abstract: How to do you engage students with the stories of a woman, a baby and a dingo? This presentation looks at the development of an interactive resource for a Justice Studies subject. The interactive presents students with media resources to review in connection with the subject learning outcomes. The interactive was designed to help scaffold student learning and prepare them for the approach they need to take in their assessment.

The interactive provides a platform where students can watch and read the trial by media Lindy Chamberlain experienced. It demonstrates the theory of intersectionality and requires students to apply their own critical thinking to a real world scenario, in preparation for the assessment tasks.

The use of the Library staff to locate and make these hard to find resources available, combined with the expertise and knowledge of DLT staff to devise and create the interactive, shows how collaboration can lead to reimagined learning for students.
