The DSTEP project used focus groups to inform a number of workshops and events and the creation of a suite of over 40 open educational resources that may be used to empower staff across programmes and institutions to engage in meaningful and creative professional development through structured peer dialogue and support. The teaching and learning unit in one university worked closely within the staff in one field of study (psychology) to enhance student engagement, taking a whole-of-programme approach to professional development. The professional development resources created through the project were aligned with the National Professional Development Framework and are now embedded in the virtual learning environment of the University.
