Teaching Development Grants (TDGs) provide opportunities for ACU staff to engage in teaching development projects around current institutional and faculty priorities. The grants contribute to innovations in learning and teaching and the development of resources and frameworks for good practice. The outcomes also advance the scholarship of learning and teaching.
All applications are assessed by the ACU Awards and Grants Committee, chaired by the Deputy Provost. The process is competitive, and applications must align to one or more of the priority areas and will be judged against the criteria outlined in the guidelines.
The following priority areas for 2021 grants are drawn from the ACU Education Strategy:
The Teaching Development Grants 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 equivalent) or the Director of your unit (whichever is appropriate), and obtain their support before you prepare your project proposal.
The 2021 ACU Teaching Development Grant Guidelines and resources are now available on the Learning and Teaching webpage. A live Q&A session for interested staff will be held on 22 June at 1-2pm, with further details/links to be provided in the near future.
