This document contains two papers that deal with the shifts in learning and teaching at Charles Sturt University (CSU), Australia. The first paper, "Inaugural CELT Learning and Teaching Forum: Re-Examining Learning and Teaching at CSU, Outcomes and Further Actions," contains the outcomes and further actions arising from the inaugural CELT (Centre for Enhancement of Learning and Teaching) Learning and Teaching Forum held February 11-12, 1997. The paper examines the first-year experience; the relationship among teaching, assessment, and student learning; the use of technology to enhance student learning; and evaluation processes. It also includes a summary of Forum poster displays and demonstrations. The second paper, "Use of Electronic Mail Among Park Management Students at Charles Sturt University" (Dirk H. R. Spennemann), provides data and analysis of student e-mail usage patterns. With the transition to on-line systems, the use of e-mail and listservs will provide value-added dimension in terms of communication and interaction for off-campus students. Teaching staff are interested in exploring how they can use electronic communication to enhance learning, and the effect its use will have on the time required for teaching. The development of effective multimedia and computer-assisted learning is only possible if educators understand students' expectations, attitudes, and abilities in relation to computers and computer-based learning.
