Abstract/Summary The Virtual School of Engineering (VSE) comprises a series of engineering problems that offer students the opportunity to develop their research and problem solving skills through collaborative team work as well as self-paced learning. It is a web-based program, developed by the University of Queensland Library as one of the projects designed to forge a link between the University and Queensland high schools. Its goals are to promote engineering as a career choice, while at the same time help develop the information literacy skill that students need to study at university. The VSE also serves to demonstrate the vital role that the library can play in planning and designing educational materials for flexible delivery. Feedback from a pilot project followed by the implementation of the program in the current second semester suggest that the VSE has been successful in achieving its goals. The VSE, which can be accessed through the Library's Cyberschool at http://www.library.uq.edu.au/schools, will be presented in this session.
