The University of Queensland’s Teaching Fellowship Scheme promotes excellence in teaching and learning through supporting educational leadership in line with University and Faculty strategic priorities. A total of six Fellowships are on offer per year, with one allocated to each Faculty. The scheme has been designed to support innovative, relatively short-term projects that will improve teaching and learning practices within the recipient’s Faculty, School or discipline. The project should have the potential to inform teaching and learning practices beyond the individual Faculty, School or discipline.

Teaching Fellows will normally undertake Fellowship activities over a period of six months, coinciding with either first or second semester of the academic year. Teaching Fellows will be required to undertake a residency component in the Institute for Teaching and Learning Innovation (ITaLI). This residency will allow the Fellows access to ITaLI staff in the planning, conducting and evaluation of their project and facilitate the Fellow’s participation in ITaLI and UQ learning communities. During the Fellow’s residency component, ITaLI will provide in-kind support in the form of office space, a computer with network access, telephone, printing and photocopying facilities.
