Online modules

This year we have also launched the online Learning and Teaching Award and Grant Writing Modules. These online modules can be accessed anytime via Learning@Griffith. The Griffith Awards for Excellence in Teaching Modules are now live and will guide you through the process of preparing your application, including:

  • Planning your application
  • Key application requirements
  • The Written Statement – Choosing an Award category
  • The Written Statement – Structure and Style
  • Reviewing your application and final submission

Before you can access the content in the modules, you may need to self-enrol. This is really easy to do; just click on the self-enrol link on the homepage or in the sidebar navigation of the Learning@Griffith Learning Futures Award and Grant Writing Modules organisation and follow the instructions.
