ACDS applications extended

Published by on the 21 January 2019

The deadline for the  ACDS Teaching and Learning Fellowship has been extended  to February 28.

The aim of the Australian Council of Deans of Science Teaching Fellowship program is to advance learning and teaching in science and mathematics by fostering further development of learning leaders through strategic projects that address priority issues identified by the ACDS. The ACDS Teaching Fellows will work with Science Faculties, or equivalent, to expand good practice and increase capability.

ACDS Teaching Fellows are emerging national leaders in learning and teaching who have the capacity to make a significant contribution to national educational leadership for science and mathematics. They are usually mid-career academics engaged in scholarly teaching practice with their contribution to learning and teaching in science and mathematics recognised by their home institution, or disciplinary or professional associations. ACDS Teaching Fellows will have demonstrated expertise and scholarship in a field of relevance to the proposed fellowship activities.

ACDS Teaching Fellows will undertake a 3 to 12 month program of activities addressing priority issues in learning and teaching in science and/or mathematics that have been identified by the ACDS. In addition, ACDS Teaching Fellows contribute to the activities of the ACDS Teaching and Learning Centre through contributions to the ACDS TL Centre website and other communications and/or the management and delivery of ACDS Teaching and Learning Events including the ACDS Teaching and Learning Leadership Conference and the Australian Conference for Science and Mathematics Education (ACSME).
