The ALTF network supports quality learning and teaching in Australian Higher Education. Fellows are leading educators who undertake strategic, high-profile activities in areas of sectoral importance. Hosted at Curtin University, the ALTF represents 108 scholars from multiple institutions and diverse discipline communities.
The Fellowships program advances learning and teaching in higher education by supporting leading educators to undertake strategic, high profile activities in areas of importance to the sector. Through and beyond their fellowship activities, Fellows have a positive and lasting influence and impact on higher education practice in Australia.
Australian Learning and Teaching Fellowships were prestigious acknowledgements of individual expertise and influence. Fellowship selection was based on individuals’ demonstrated leadership capacity in higher education; the final 14 fellowships were awarded in 2016.
Fellowships afforded opportunities for individuals to undertake strategic programs of activities around identified educational issues, to develop their knowledge of the broader higher education environment in Australia, and to practise and further develop their leadership skills in this area.
