Drs Helen Wozniak and Narelle Campbell have been successful in winning both an Excellence in Teaching and Learning Award, and a Teaching and Learning Innovation Grant. This is the first time FlindersNT academics have been awarded a University Teaching and Learning Innovation Grant.
Faculty Teaching Excellence Award
The Flinders University Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences (FMNHS) Executive Dean’s Teaching Excellence Award, worth $2500, is designed to recognise and reward teaching excellence and innovation.
Narelle and Helen’s application showcased their suite of flexible professional development resources for promoting quality workplace supervision of learners. Designed to address the isolation of geographically-remote supervisors, the initiatives included an evidence-based guide, templates and videos, and training activities using peer, paper-based, live and webinar modalities. This suite has been delivered in the Northern Territory, nationally and internationally and aims to bridge the theory-practice gap between workshop-type training and the workplace-based context of supervision.

Flinders University Teaching and Learning Innovation Grant
As well as being awarded the Faculty Teaching Award Narelle and Helen were also successful with a Flinders Teaching and Learning Innovation Grant. They were first awarded the FMNHS level grant worth $5,000, and as a consequence, were invited to submit an additional application for the University Teaching and Learning Innovation grants worth up to $12,000. Their success with the university grant application will be recognised at a university function in Adelaide.
The University Teaching Innovation Grant was titled Faculty development by distance, extending the reach of clinical supervision training to impact student learning in the workplace and will allow development and implementation of new initiatives that expand Helen and Narelle’s current faculty development programs for work-integrated learning supervisors. The initiatives include contextualised accessible interactive webinars coupled with an online collaborative community of practice support to enable supervisors to implement quality practice in the workplace.
