In the context of the University of Queensland's strategic priority to achieve a graduate student proportion of 25 per cent, the Postgraduate Flexible Learning Funding Scheme aims to encourage stronger demand for postgraduate coursework programs by enhancing opportunities for students to enrol in and to complete a whole program of study in flexible mode.  Flexible mode may involve face-to-face and/or online delivery and/or the use of print-based and/or multimedia resources.

The Scheme provides funding to assist with the innovative design or redesign of teaching and learning in existing or new postgraduate coursework programs at a whole-of-program level, with a view to providing increased learning opportunities and options for students, and improving student learning outcomes. 

The Scheme will involve the Faculty/School-based Project Team working with a TEDI team of educational and instructional designers in a full curriculum development/redevelopment process and in the incorporation and development of innovative learning resources.

Funding of up to $10,000 per course is available from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) on condition that these funds will be matched by funds or in-kind support by the Faculty or Faculties administering the program and participating Schools.

A maximum of two (2) projects per Faculty will be considered for funding.

Funding will be released as Project milestones are met.
