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

A graduate of TeachingPlus@UQ has experience in designing, implementing and evaluating a Teaching and Learning (T&L) project. Through this experience, the graduate develops into a reflective practitioner, becomes conversant with the higher education landscape, and develops a network of T&L connections. The graduate improves their teaching practice, and becomes an emerging leader in T&L at UQ.

The TeachingPlus@UQ program:

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

This program is designed for UQ academic and professional staff who:

  • are passionate about Teaching and Learning (T&L)
  • have at least two years' experience with UQ processes, contemporary T&L practices and teaching
  • would like to develop their career by becoming a leader in T&L
  • are already conversant with UQ T&L practices, policies and procedures.
