The Director EED, the Dean of Students and the interactive multimedia team from the Educational Media Laboratory (emlab) within the Faculty of Education at the University of Wollongong have joined together in a project to create an online tutorial to educate university students in Australia about harassment and discrimination, within the context of a university environment. The program draws from a range of student experiences in a variety of settings to raise awareness of their responsibilities and rights and the types of behaviour, which can be discriminatory or considered as harassment. It is proposed to make the program compulsory for all incoming students.
