Teaching Grant Success
As a university, we are renowned for high quality teachers who incorporate innovative teaching and learning practices to enhance the student learning experience. The university committed funding to enhance staff engagement in Scholarship of Learning and Teaching through the support of high quality teaching and learning projects that support teaching staff in exploring, testing, practicing and communicating improved pedagogies, learning processes, curricula, policies and learning materials. A round of Teaching Excellence Development Fund (TEDF) and Teaching Academic Scholarship Seed (TASS) grants were awarded in November 2015 with a view to be completed in December 2016.
Congratulations to those from the School of Biomedical Sciences, who were successful:
- Julianne Crowley and Arpana Dhar: “Using peer review and co-teaching to build sessional teachers capacity and engagement”.
- Alina Miranda, Alison Kelly and Vincent Williams: “Developing authentic simulation to enhance clinical and technical skills for Diagnostic Cytology students”.
There will be another round of TEDF/TASS grants opening in April 2016 and I encourage all those in the teaching space to endeavour to submit your teaching projects.
