This paper describes the outcomes of a meta-analysis of 33 projects focussed on technology-enhanced learning and teaching funded by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council. Our approach to the development of the commissioned Good Practice Report: Technology-enhanced Learning and Teaching (Keppell, Suddaby, Hard, 2011) involved a meta-analysis of the 33 projects to determine best practice. We initially developed a matrix for the comparison of projects as well as a means to thematically analyse the 33 projects. The analysis determined ten outcomes that represent best practice for technology enhanced learning and teaching. A subsequent phase involved subsuming each of the projects under relevant outcomes. Projects that traversed multiple outcomes were considered exemplary projects. This paper will discuss the ten outcomes of the project and their implications for higher education.
