Applications are now invited for Teaching Development Grants with a focus on building cultural capacity through the inclusion of Indigenous knowledges in curricula, graduate attributes, and teaching practices. Such work has the potential to improve access and outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in higher education and the outcomes for the communities in which our graduates work.
All applications are assessed by the ACU Awards and Grants Committee, chaired by the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Education and Innovation).The process is competitive, and applications will be judged against the criteria outlined in the guidelines.
The Teaching Development Grants Scheme is open to ACU teaching staff or teaching teams (including professional staff). In order to lead an ACU TDG you must hold a continuing or fixed term position within the University. Sessional staff are encouraged to join a TDG team.
It is important to read the ACU Teaching Development Grant guidelines and discuss your plans with the appropriate Head of School, your Associate Dean, Learning and Teaching (or equivalent) or the Director of your unit and obtain their support before you prepare your project proposal. You can also contact the Learning and Teaching Centre lead, Dr Alison Owens to discuss your TDG idea and your draft proposal.
The 2019 ACU Teaching Development Grant Guidelines and other resources are now available on the Learning and Teaching website.
