18 Reflections on 2009  Lunchtime meeting worked, although numbers small. “They were an excellent opportunity for showcasing, problem solving, and sharing ideas and inspiration. This sort of work is at a frontier of tertiary education where the informal forums are essential for development, innovation, and continued motivation”  Developer group, less successful as far as outcomes  Research, and my own experiences, shows academics need support to develop e-lessons using advanced paradigms
