Become a leader within the teaching community – UC teaching scholarships now open

UC’s Leadership in Teaching Development Programme offers prestigious scholarships that reward recipients with time and funds to pursue their teaching interests, within their localised teaching and learning communities.

In 2021, the Deputy Vice Chancellor’s office will again be awarding five scholarships across UC to support teaching development projects. The scholarship offers $10,000 to enable staff to undertake teaching related research and development, as well as an academic buyout for 0.2 FTE for two years. Proposed projects need to address UC strategic priorities, while building developmental capacity for collaborative problem-solving through authentic, practiced-based teaching development.

This is the second year of the Leadership in Teaching Development scholarship, with five projects already funded and underway. The projects that have secured funding so far are looking at a range of issues; from the development of robust methodology for flipped/blended teaching environments, to equity and inclusiveness in online teaching. The uses of adaptive technology to enhance introductory math outcomes, indigeneity in Engineering teaching, and developing pedagogies that better support practice-oriented teaching and assessment are further areas currently being researched.

The scholarship is prestigious. It rewards staff who are interested in developing teaching practices, and offers recipients the opportunity to become leaders within the teaching community.

Check out this website for more information on the scholarships, and how you might be able to apply.

Applications close on the 31st of March, 2021.
