The Teaching and Learning Enhancement Grant scheme can provide you with support, advice, and resources to make improvements to your teaching. Applying for a grant is a great opportunity to get dedicated time from learning designers to develop interactive online resources, create videos, get assessment or course design advice, or increase engagement in lectures or tutorials. All academics and clinicians in SMP are invited to apply now for projects to be undertaken in 2025, with dedicated funding available for postgraduate and undergraduate medicine and psychology courses and programs.

What kinds of projects can be funded?

TELT projects can include a range of different options to enhance learning and teaching in a particular program or course, such as re-designing curriculum, courses, activities, or assessments to promote active learning for students. For example, adapting lecture content into interactive online modules can free up in-class time to focus on hands-on activities.

The project funding is often used to provide staffing to support the academics and clinicians to research and prepare the content, with the TELT team producing multimedia, graphics, video, and providing learning design and project management support. Funding can also be used to purchase specialised software, hardware, or digital assets if needed.

Some options to consider:

Examples of previous projects
