The grant opportunity for staff teaching first year undergraduate students has been approved again for 2015. The DVC(A) (Professor Andrew Parkin) has again provided a small amount of funding (each grant is valued at a maximum of $4,000) to continue the initiative to embed Transition Pedagogy Principles across the first year curriculum. Information on the successful 2014 grants may be found here.
The grants are open to all staff teaching in a first year topic or who will have leadership responsibility for a first year topic in 2015. Staff employed in Education Focused Roles are particularly encouraged to apply. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
An information session will be held on Tuesday 4 November from midday to 1pm (please note the change from the previously advertised date) in Room 1300, Physical Sciences Building. Questions regarding the grant will be at the session. Applications are due on Friday, 14 November at 5pm.
