Associate Professor Gail Wilson BA(Hons)(Tor), BEd(Tor), MEd(Macquarie), PhD(Deakin), PFHEA

Gail is a member of Southern Cross University's Emeritus Faculty.

Gail served as Director, Centre for Teaching and Learning, Southern Cross University from 2013-2017.

Gail is an editor for the UK journal Research in Learning Technology (RLT). She is an assessor for the AAUT national teaching awards and a member of ASCILITE and HERDSA. She was recently appointed to the TEQSA Experts Register for a period of three years. She led the Assessment@SCU project completed in 2018 which supports the University's current Assessment Policy. Gail held a position on the HERDSA Executive from 2005 - 2011 and continues to serve on the HERDSA Guides Committee.

Gail was a member of the Global Partnerships for Academic Teaching Excellence Project led by the Queensland University of Technology. She is the lead author on a recently completed resource funded by CAULLT called "External Peer Review of Assessment: A Guide to the External Referencing of Academic Standards".

Gail was one of three members of the Steering Committee of a large teaching and learning grant funded by the Australian Learning & Teaching Council (ALTC) Preparing Academics to Teach in Higher Education (2010). An extension to this grant funded by the Office of Learning and Teaching (OLT) which focused on the development of online modules for staff who teach in higher education teacher preparation programs (TPPs) was completed in 2012.

In 2013 she received another OLT Extension Grant on Peer Review of Teaching in Online and Blended Learning Environments, working with the University of Queensland. Currently, she is leading a CAULLT-funded project to develop a resource to support external peer review of assessment.

Gail's research interests focus on online professional learning for teachers in higher education, resource-based learning, and peer review in the context of online and blended learning environments using a conversational approach to giving and receiving feedback between staff. She is keenly interested in teachers as designers, and ways in which learning design principles and good design practice can be shared with academics.

Gail is currently pursuing postgraduate studies in the area of editing and electronic publishing at Macquarie University to enhance her skills in academic editing. She works part time as an independent consultant in higher education.
