About Redbook

The information has been compiled from the experience of many academic staff. Some sections are based on another document prepared by staff in the School of Applied Psychology (Gold Coast) and modified by Dr Mark Chappell. Credit is due to the many people who assisted the development of this manual, including academic staff, tutors, and students – in particular, credit is due to Andrea Quinn and Maddy Phillips who originally composed this document. We extend our thanks as well to Wendy Muller who made the 2012 changes, to Tara Stokes and Kylee Forrest who made comments on the example lab report, to Prof Sharon Dawe for comments on the essay, and to Denise Hatzis, Jennifer Cheung & Tatjana Dordic for overall feedback. We thank the School Student Lifecycle group (Analise O'Donovan, David Neumann, Fran O'Callaghan, Chris Pepping, Karen Murphy, Rebecca Eaton, Robyn Idewa Gede) for developing the concept of putting this resource on-line for free and quick access for everyone. The group had the excellent support of the Health Blended Learning team, lead by Ganeshan Rao, in achieving this vision.
