Abstract

This paper outlines and evaluates a new learning strategy implemented in the Faculty of Economics and Commerce at the University of Melbourne. The strategy is an Internet based assignment delivery and assessment system designed to (i) equip students to make link between macroeconomic theory and important real-world issues, (ii) develop positive attitudes to the subject (iii) develop deep approaches to learning (iv) develop a facility for critical analysis and problem solving and (v) develop effective study habits. Using a multi-dimensional evaluation strategy, the indications are that the new approach has succeeded in its aims.
