Abstract

In 2013, the national Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) in Australia called for expressions of interest and subsequent grant applications for a new project, the ETMST program. The OLT had an overarching brief to promote and support change in Australian higher education institutions to enhance learning and teaching. The OLT attempted to achieve this by: - awarding grants for research projects - running awards to recognise excellence in teaching - supporting collaboration and sharing good practie - supporting professional development by academic staff.
