The Fellowships program advances learning and teaching in higher education by supporting a group of leading educators to undertake strategic, high-profile activities in areas of importance to the sector. Through their fellowship activities, Fellows have a positive and lasting influence and impact on higher education practice in Australia. Fellowship selection is based on individuals’ demonstrated leadership capacity in higher education. The fellowships are prestigious acknowledgements of individuals’ expertise and influence and, as such, are highly valued by recipients’ home institutions. Fellowships afford opportunities for individuals to undertake strategic programs of activities around identified educational issues, to develop their knowledge of the broader higher education environment in Australia, and to practise and further develop their leadership skills in this area.
There will be up to 4 National Senior Teaching Fellowships and up to 6 National Teaching Fellowships offered in 2015.
All applications will need to be forwarded to the Promoting Excellence Team before submission and will be assessed by the Monash Education Grants Committee. Please note the following internal closing dates:
