ALTC National Teaching and Learning Fellowship: Strategy 2011 – 2012
This fellowship was aimed at showing how IOL can live up to the promise of enhanced student engagement and graduate capabilities and how we can support these activities to their full potential. Our strategic plan focussed the fellowship activities in four strategic areas and were implemented and monitored through a robust planning and review program throughout 2012.
We acted to:
- Stimulate the national conversation in the higher education curriculum to focus on student centred learning.
- Champion the use of IOL in Australia by working with academics, educational developers and policy makers.
- Disseminate good local, national and international practice of IOL and provide practice-informed advice to those developing IOL experiences.
- Support embedding IOL in the curriculum in response to the needs of key stakeholders.
- Examine the student experience and incorporate the student perspective into the delivery of IOL activities.
- Establish, sustain and expand connections across national science networks to improve science education.
