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.

Flinders University's Faculty Scholar Program commenced in 2008 and is run on a yearly basis. The Program provides a supportive environment for participants to engage in teaching and learning projects of institutional importance bestowing a legitimisation for the scholarship of learning and teaching.

The Faculty Scholars teaching and learning related project is designed to contribute to the enhancement of teaching and learning within the University and the quality of the student experience. Supported by the Centre for University Teaching the Faculty Scholars have recorded a video providing an overview of their project.
