The Learning and Teaching Centre (LTC) is pleased to announce two Groups of Teaching Development Grants (TDGs) for 2020.
The grants contribute to innovations in learning and teaching and the development of resources and frameworks for good practice. The grants are intended to reflect and extend professional development in SoTL and inform and support applications for teaching awards and citations.
All grant applications are assessed by the ACU Awards and Grants Committee, chaired by the DVC (Education and Innovation). The process is competitive and applications are judged against the criteria outlined in the guidelines.
The Teaching Development Grants (TDGs) scheme is open to ACU teaching staff or teaching teams (including professional staff). It is important to read the ACU Teaching Development Grant guidelines and discuss your plans with your Head of School, your Associate Dean (Learning and Teaching) or the Director of your unit (whichever is appropriate) and obtain their support before you prepare your project proposal.
Please review the TDG Guidelines documents for information on the distinct priority focus areas for Group 1 and Group 2 Grants.
