Technical Annual Report 2000/01 263 The objective of the GLM project is to coordinate the development of a learning package that grazing land management that will be used throughout northern Australia by August 2001. The package will contain a core of generic information relating to basic ecology relevant to a wide area, locally specific information and case studies and workshop activities. Several modes of delivery are proposed, including workshops, INTERNET/ CD ROM based external learning. The delivery of the completed workshop series to end-users will be strictly quality controlled and based on successfully securing tenders submitted to MLA. Officers within DPIF are contributing with other agencies across northern Australia. The GLM project will be an important extension outlet for grazing management work carried out throughout the Katherine region. Results: Activities throughout the year have included participation in project planning meetings, consultation with research and extension officers to identify the source and availability of information relating to identified learning outcomes, involvement in the development of a workshop scheme for the estimation of on-property carrying capacity and stocking rates. Production of the information required for the project has necessitated the bringing together of most of the recent Katherine rangelands and animal research. A pre-pilot workshop was conducted in Katherine in July to gather input on the content and structure of the workshop from agency and industry perspectives.
