Learning and Teaching

For: 

The Australian Government promotes and supports the enhancement of learning and teaching in eligible higher education institutions through the Australian Awards for University Teaching and Enhancing the Training of Mathematics and Science Teachers Program. From 2018 the Australian Awards for University teaching will be led by Universities Australia.

 

The Australian Government has announced a range of reforms to improve the higher education sector. These reforms will deliver a more sustainable sector, more choices for students and increase transparency and accountability in higher education. For more information visit the Higher Education Reform Package webpage.

2017 Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning

Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning are presented at a series of state-based ceremonies in the second half of the year.  National Awards for Teaching Excellence, including the Australian University Teacher of the Year, and awards for Programs that Enhance Learning are presented to recipients at a national ceremony in Canberra at the end of the year. Information about the Australian Awards for University Teaching is available on the Awards pages.

Ongoing grants and fellowships (awarded through the Office for Learning and Teaching) will continue to be funded to the end of their scheduled timelines. Information on managing and reporting on current grants is available on the grants and fellowships page.

Enhancing the Training of Mathematics and Science Teachers Program is driving a major improvement in the quality of mathematics and science teachers by supporting new pre-service programs in which faculties, schools or departments of science, mathematics and education collaborate on course design and delivery, combining content and pedagogy so that mathematics and science are taught as dynamic, forward-looking and collaborative human endeavours. The program was established in response to recommendations from Professor Ian Chubb, AC, Australia's Chief Scientist, in his 2012 report Mathematics, Engineering and Science: in the national interest.
