The TeachingPlus@UQ program will provide professional learning opportunities for the University's future teaching and learning leaders.

A graduate of TeachingPlus@UQ will have experience in designing, implementing and evaluating a Teaching and Learning (T&L) project.

Through this experience, the graduate will have developed into a reflective practitioner; be conversant with the higher education landscape; and will have developed a network of T&L connections. The graduate will have improved their teaching practice, and be an emerging leader in T&L at UQ.

A Pilot Program is being conducted in 2019.

TeachingPlus@UQ will:

  • Build on the Teaching@UQ program
  • Engage academics in applied research that:
    • directly impacts student learning
    • develops leadership capacity
  • Extend application of reflective practice in T&L
  • Provide an opportunity for accreditation as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
