At the heart of this 'object-based learning' 2018 L&T funded project was the aim to develop a model to comprehensively map collection objects with units across campus and out into schools. The purpose was to remove barriers between the learning and teaching community and the Macquarie University collections. Due to timing and resource restraints the project was constructed as a pilot and focussed on mapping two collections to primary and secondary curriculum as well as units across the five faculties on campus. This presentation will show the methodology developed, as well as phase one planning and phase two feedback and implementation strategies. Additionally it will investigate its ongoing potential and next collaborative steps beyond the university's borders.
