|The Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) aims to enhance learning and teaching in Australian higher education, as well as the student experience, through collaborative and supportive partnerships with institutions. They recognise, reward and support outstanding teaching and practice through a suite of award, fellowship and grant schemes.
Aim of the Fellowship Scheme
The aim of the Fellowship Scheme is to advance learning and teaching in higher education by supporting leading educators to undertake strategic, high profile fellowship activities in areas that support the Mission of the Council. Fellows are expected to develop a program that explores and addresses a significant educational issue; develop their personal skills and profile and to be ongoing advocates for excellence in learning and teaching. The fellowships will involve collaborative activities and the building of national and international partnerships. Fellows will become part of a national group of experts and leaders in learning and teaching in higher education.
