Enrolment is now open for the Trimester 2, 2019 offerings of the four programs that offer a pathway to HEA Fellowship at Griffith. There was a lot of interest in the Trimester 1 offerings, with over 150 of your colleagues expressing their interest and enrolling in a program!

Why are educators seeking HEA Fellowship? One of the reasons is that Fellowship offers professional recognition for commitment to teaching and enhancing students’ learning experiences and outcomes. HEA Fellowships are also globally recognised and portable across universities, and are increasingly considered as part of the appointment and promotion process.

The programs offered through HEA Fellowships@Griffith offer practical opportunities for you to enhance your teaching and course design practice, and develop your learning and teaching capabilities. The programs are open to all staff – academics (including sessional academics) and professional staff members.

Staff who sought HEA Fellowship in Trimester 1, 2019 expressed that they found the experience incredibly useful and worthwhile. Participants have enjoyed forming their own informal professional learning communities, learning from the program facilitators and each other. They have embraced the opportunity to engage in reflective practice while simultaneously moving toward professional recognition of their practice through their chosen program pathway.
