The Flinders University faculty scholar initiative has been designed to contribute to a distributive leadership model and to encourage development and innovation in learning and teaching across the University. It also supports continuing professional development in learning and teaching in faculties.
Taking a leadership role in learning and teaching as a Scholar for 1 year contributes to the enhancement of learning and teaching within the University and the quality of the student experience.
As well as personal benefits, the initiative provides valuable opportunities to engage with like-minded staff from across Flinders. There are also wider benefits to students, Divisions, Schools, Support Departments and the University in taking forward innovation in learning and teaching through this distributive leadership approach.
