Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology
Paul Kennedy is the director of the Learning Technology Services Group at RMIT. He has a BSc and PhD in Physics and has been involved in teaching and learning in information technology at RMIT for 22 years. During this time he has contributed to the development of the discipline of computer systems engineering which bridges the gap between computer science and electrical engineering and spent time as both the course leader and head of the computer systems engineering department at RMIT. As associate dean (academic) of the faculty of engineering he was responsible for overseeing the redevelopment of engineering degree programs consistent with the new rules for engineering accreditation developed by the Institution of Engineers Australia and for the establishment of a comprehensive quality assurance based approach to the management of program delivery.

During 1998 the University established the IT Alignment Project, a major research project to determine how to achieve the greatest benefit/cost from IT applied to teaching and learning. Kennedy played a central role in overseeing the project and was appointed as the first director for IT alignment, since changed in name (but not function) to Learning Technology Services. As director he oversees the deployment of a large investment by the university to ensure the effective use of IT in enriching the learning environment for students and to expand the University's market share of students both within Australia and in Asian markets where the demand for quality educational services is expanding rapidly. word gamespc game downloadsbrick bustermahjongshooter gamesadventure gamesmanagement gameshidden object games
