Aims of the Scheme

The UQ Teaching Fellowship Scheme aims to:

  • support emerging teaching and learning leaders to undertake a program of activities that will advance teaching and learning in their Faculty or discipline;
  • develop the educational expertise and leadership skills of UQ Teaching Fellows and contribute to the growing community of scholars in higher education learning and teaching;
  • enhance disciplinary or interdisciplinary learning and teaching at UQ.

To achieve the aims of the scheme, UQ Teaching Fellows are expected to:

  1. Identify a learning and teaching issue within their Faculty or discipline and facilitate an approach to addressing this issue;
  2. Show leadership in promoting and enhancing learning and teaching within their Faculty or discipline;
  3. Establish and build on partnerships in learning and teaching within their Faculty and the University; and
  4. Foster networks with other emerging teaching and learning leaders in the University and beyond.

Teaching Fellows will normally undertake fellowship activities over a period of six months, coinciding with either first or second semester of the academic year. Teaching Fellows will be required to undertake a residency in the Teaching and Educational Development Institute, the Centre for Educational Innovation and Technology and/or the Centre for Innovation in Professional Learning either part-time for the full fellowship period or full-time for part of the fellowship period. Fellows will be supported by TEDI/CEIT/CIPL staff in planning, conducting and evaluating their program of fellowship activities.

Following completion of the Fellowship, a final report should be submitted using the template provided:
