Project name Cultural diversity and online learning: an investigation of students studying in the fields of education, business and law, arts, health and behavioural sciences and science and technology at Deakin
Project Description The aim of the project was to develop best practices in relation to embracing cultural diversity amongst students participating in online learning. This involved:
- identifying key dimensions of cultural diversity as they apply to online teaching and learning;
- assessing key impacts of cultural diversity in online teaching and learning for both local and international students;
- extrapolating the major consequences of cultural diversity for designing and conducting online learning environments;
- documenting the best practice to provide mediation for culturally diverse student cohorts studying online.

Summary The dataset consists of data gathered from Deakin University staff and students.

Staff-derived data consists of qualitative data relating to advantages and disadvantages of teaching online; manifestation of cultural diversity in online learning environments; strategies to accommodate cultural diversity online; and using online environments to support cultural diversity

Student-derived data consists of quantitative and qualitative data relating to student perceptions of online learning; student demographics; student expectations of their university experience; students' approach to learning and online learning; perceptions of online learning and online team work; and perceptions of student and teacher roles at university.
General notes The collection of this data was undertaken as part of a Strategic Teaching and Learning Grant at Deakin University in 2005.

Staff data was collected via face to face focus group sessions, which were held at three Deakin University campuses in August 2005. The teaching staff involved were purposefully selected due to their experience with online course design and implementation, and were representative of all faculties and campuses across the University. Invitations to attend the focus group sessions were sent out to 35 staff, with 29 actually participating in the focus groups. The duration of each focus group session ran for just over an hour each. A content analysis was undertaken using NVivo software. The data is organised by focus group.

Student data was collected via a university-wide online survey that was anonymous and voluntary. The survey was made available to all enrolled students at the University for a period of two weeks in September 2005 via the University's intranet. The survey consisted of sixty questions developed by the researchers based on existing literature and brainstorming sessions. The data from 2701 completed surveys was gathered into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and various types of statistical analysis were performed on the data. A content analysis of all the answers to the open-ended questions was undertaken using NVivo software. The data is organised by participant.
