Teaching Development Grants applications open

Do you have innovative ideas for program and curriculum development or initiatives to enhance student learning experiences that would benefit from funding? CEI has launched Teaching Development Grants for 2023.

Teaching Development Grants (TDGs) provide ACU teaching staff or teaching teams, including professional staff, with opportunities to create teaching development projects aligned with institutional and faculty priorities.

These grants help foster innovation, enhance resources, promote good practice frameworks and contribute to the scholarship of learning and teaching.

Applications must align with one or more of the priority areas listed below which are drawn from the ACU Education Strategy, and assessed against the criteria outlined in the TDG guidelines

Teaching Development Grant priority areas

Teaching Development Grant priority areas include:

  1. Broadening access and participation by offering flexible learning options and student choice.
  2. Developing discipline competence and extending this through work integrated learning experiences.
  3. Partnering with students, industry and community to co-develop curricula that are fit for purpose and prepare students for future employment opportunities.
  4. Fostering opportunities for transdisciplinary, interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary approaches to enable students to make a difference.
  5. Embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Knowings in curricula to prepare students to work interculturally and with respect and competence.
  6. Assessing with authentic tasks that are aligned to practice and skills in the real world.
  7. Providing a responsive digital learning ecosystem that includes appropriate tools.
  8. Embedding research and scholarship in curricula to ensure evidence-based teaching and learning.

It is important to read the TDG 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 preparing your project proposal.

Applications are due to CEI on Friday 18 August.
