Extension Grants support the continued dissemination and embedding of completed learning and teaching projects. Funding is in the form of a grant of up to $30,000 provided to disseminate or embed the outcomes of completed learning and teaching projects or fellowships in institutions which were not partners in the original project. Funds may be used to trial resources or curricula, run workshops, present at relevant conferences (including registration, travel, accommodation and incidental expenses) or to establish new websites. Funds may be approved to maintain existing project or fellowship websites beyond the period mandated in the original grant.

Extension Grants are specifically intended to achieve the following objectives:

  • raise the profile of the fundamental importance of teaching in higher education institutions and in the general community
  • develop effective mechanisms for the identification, development, dissemination and embedding of good individual and institutional practice, including addressing particular contextual barriers to taking on the good practice identified
