Resources for learning and teaching grant applicants

There are some excellent resources available for those wishing to consider, plan and develop grant applications to undertake learning and teaching projects. Some provide information to help applicants and there are also resources to help manage projects.

Preparing a grant application

A presentation from The University of Queensland on Developing submissions for the UQ Strategic Teaching and Learning Grants Scheme provides a good example of how to match the application rationale to university priorities. While it is developed in the context of UQ awards, once you get beyond that information there is general information that is excellent.

Thinking about dissemination - ensuring value from your work!

The D-Cubed project was funded by the ALTC (now OLT) to help applicants build evidence-based approaches to building dissemination into project design. The quick guide for applicants should assist you in thinking about how to get the best take-up of your project.

The OLT page on dissemination includes the full D-Cubed guide and other resources for thinking about dissemination, working with different stakeholder groups, and strategy and innovation in dissemination.

Project evaluation

The OLT page on project evaluation covers each aspect of the process of evaluating learning and teaching projects. (These resources were prepared by ACU's Assoc. Prof. Paul Chesterton and Dr Rick Cummings from Murdoch.)
