The impact that each Australian Learning and Teaching Fellow makes to improving our students’ learning and higher education experiences is greatly valued. Our Australian Learning and Teaching Fellowship lapel pins are a symbol of this and formally presenting them gives us, our university colleagues and others opportunities to show their appreciation.
