DEHub was established in 2009 at the University of New England (UNE) and, with the support of an Australian Commonwealth grant, has initiated a number of projects in the field of distance education. It is an academic unit for promoting knowledge transfer about best practice in distance education and supporting national and global collaborations on evidence-based approaches to effectively and efficiently employing new technologies in distance education. CQUniversity (CQU), the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), Charles Sturt University (CSU) and Massey University partner with UNE’s DEHub in selected research activities, forming a consortium of Australia and New Zealand’s larges t and leading distance education providers. The Commonwealth grant supporting a range of projects emerging out of UNE ’s DeHub is drawing to a close in December 2012.
