The Australian Learning and Teaching Fellows network includes Australia’s leading higher education scholars, who bring a wealth of experience in evidenced-based approaches to support student success and high-quality learning and teaching.
In recognition of this expertise, we have created the ALTF Student Success blog: a forum for Fellows to share their insights and contribute to the national higher education conversation. The blog will be published on a regular basis, with special out-of-round editions released in response to hot topics.
The blog has now officially launched with a piece from ALTF President Professor Sally Kift titled Not drowning, waving (though the sniff of a lifeline wouldn’t go astray): A 2017 HE retrospective.
We are currently accepting topic proposals for 2018 and encourage all ALT fellows to contribute. The blog will be shared through the ALTF LinkedIn page and various social media, and we ask all fellows to comment and share through your networks. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the editorial guidelines.
