The first paper in this issue, "Towards a Re-examination of Learning and Teaching at Charles Sturt University" (Perry Share, Mark Farrell, Erica Smith, Jenni Brackenreg, Lesley Ballantyne, Lisa Fawkes, Michelle Dean, Mark McFadden, and Judith Parker) is a major discussion paper by a Working Party of Academic Senate at Charles Sturt University (CSU) (Australia) and it explores fundamental learning and teaching issues in a period of continuing dramatic change in higher education. Promoting lifelong learning, the role of assessment in learning, resource based support for learning and teaching and academic staff development are some of the issues examined. The second paper, "The Nature of Scholarship in Charles Sturt University: Observations and Proposals Arising from the Work of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching" (by David Meacham) develops ideas on scholarship within universities presented by the Carnegie Foundation to CSU staff. The third paper, "On-Campus Residential Schools and Alternatives: Staff Interviews" (by Sue Moffatt) examines responses from a cross-section of 10 academic staff, and identifies anomalies between University policy and practices, especially in relation to compulsory and optional residential schools. In the final paper, "Library Use as a Generic Skill" (by Dirk Spennemann, Lesley Montfort, and Greg Fry) the authors who are located at the Murray campus of CSU describe how the teaching of important generic library skills is embedded in a series of different subjects taught by the School of Environmental and Information Sciences. How teaching staff and the Division of Library Services at CSU cooperate to teach information skills is also examined. (HEF)
