Developing Excellence in Learning and Teaching through Peer Assisted teaching Scheme

2012 ALTC Teaching Fellowship

Keywords: ,

Professor Angela Carbone

Fellowship years: 2012 - 2014

Abstract: "The fellowship will contribute to the national discourse on standards in learning and teaching, in particular, the development of teaching excellence. It will do this through: understanding how faculties support academics whose units are perceived by students as needing critical attention; applying and adapting a Peer Assisted Teaching framework trialled at Monash University; providing leadership opportunities for previous teaching award winners with outstanding teaching skills; and developing strategies, plans and policies to assist faculties with supporting and enhancing teaching quality. The flow-on effects of this scheme will inform an understanding of what measures, indicators or evidence are required for teaching standards. The fellowship program will strengthen the quality assurance commitments in universities, as needed by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) to protect the overall quality of the Australian higher education system"
