EO Online is an equal opportunity training program that raises awareness about discrimination and harassment issues. It has been developed for the higher education community by a consortium of Australian universities.
It covers theoretical knowledge and a practical understanding of how to apply equal opportunity principles in work and study environments.
The training program is presented in two self-paced modules which should take approximately 40–55 minutes to complete. Each module includes information, real-life examples, scenarios, quizzes and a learning summary for each section.
There is no time limit for completion of quizzes or the number of times a quiz can be attempted and no results are recorded.
Why should students complete this training?
In Australia, it is unlawful to discriminate against or harass someone at work or in education. The University has an obligation under State and Federal discrimination and human rights legislation to provide a work and educational environment that is free from harassment, discrimination, bullying and vilification.
Students are encouraged to re-visit EO Online periodically to refresh their knowledge, and to use the program as a resource when necessary.
Students are not required to register their completion of EO Online (this applies only to University staff).
How do students access EO Online?
