The Teaching Large Classes project was funded by the Australian Universities Teaching Committee (AUTC), a national body aimed at improving teaching and learning in Australian universities, through the identification of emerging issues in teaching and learning, supporting the identification of effective strategies for enhancing learning, and encouraging the dissemination and adoption of these methods across the Australian university sector. For more details about how the project was conducted, see About this project.
