Fellowships for Learning and Teaching

UNSW teaching staff can apply for 3 different types of learning and teaching fellowships.

OLT Fellowships

The Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) 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.

Fellowship selection is based on individuals’ demonstrated leadership capacity in higher education. The fellowships are prestigious acknowledgements of individuals’ expertise and influence and, as such, are highly valued by UNSW. Fellowships afford 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.

  • Up to 4 National Senior Teaching Fellowships are available in 2013
  • Up to 6 National Teaching Fellowships are available in 2013

Closing dates

Please note that the 2014 OLT Fellowships have now closed. We will update this page as soon as the OLT release the 2015 dates.

HERDSA Fellowship

The Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia (HERDSA) Fellowship Professional Recognition and Development Scheme recognises higher education teaching and supports learning and teaching that satisfies quality standards related to a set of criteria. It then builds on that recognition by designing and implementing advanced professional development activities to ensure that the standards are maintained and built upon. A HERDSA Fellowship (FHERDSA) is awarded to applicants who satisfy the standards of the Scheme.
