Apply now for 2019 ACU Teaching Development Grants
Published: Thursday 11th July 2019
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 DVC (Education and Innovation). 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.
Priority areas for 2019 grants are:
* Using technology to improve the student experience and enhance teaching practice * Work-integrated learning, including developing enterprise and entrepreneurial skills, to enhance student employability * Innovative strategies for facilitating student progression, retention, success and completion rates * Assessment to promote student learning * Integrating Catholic Intellectual Tradition into the curriculum
The Teaching Development Grants (TDG) 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. You can also contact the LTC lead, Dr Alison Owens (email@example.com), to discuss your TDG idea and your draft proposal.
