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 of importance to the sector. Through their fellowship activities, Fellows have a positive and lasting influence and impact on higher education practice in Australia.
National Senior Teaching Fellows are outstanding scholars in their fields, recognised by their home institutions for their existing and continuing leadership roles in university learning and teaching. They are usually senior academics or senior people with expertise in higher education practice and scholarship, and a record of institutional or disciplinary leadership.
Up to four National Senior Teaching Fellowships are available in 2013, with a maximum of value of $250,000 each.
National Teaching Fellows are prominent scholars in their disciplinary fields, recognised by their home institutions for their capacity to make significant contributions to educational leadership into the future. They are normally early or mid-career academics engaged in the scholarly practice of learning and teaching in higher education. National Teaching Fellows undertake a short program of activities over the course of three to six months, addressing an identified learning and teaching issue within their institution or discipline, with the goal of enhancing disciplinary or inter-disciplinary teaching and learning within their institution, and beyond.
Up to six Mid-Career fellowships are available in 2013, with a maximum of value of $90,000 each.
