OLT Commissioned Projects

The Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) occasionally commissions strategic projects in response to key issues in the Australian higher education sector with the guidance of OLT’s Strategic Advisory Committee.

Applications are now open for commissioned projects in the following areas:

  1. Learning analytics: how can it assist us with student retention?
  2. Graduate employability: how can universities best support students to develop generic skills?
  3. Technology enabled learning: how can student learning outcomes be enhanced?
  4. National learning and teaching resource audit and classification
  5. Good Practice Reports:
  • Postgraduate research and coursework degrees
  • Standards
Projects 1–3 are larger strategic projects of national interest and we would anticipate proposals for funding of $220,000 and beyond. The OLT may award one or more grants to address a strategic topic.

Project 4, National learning and teaching resource audit and classification, has funding available of up to $150,00 and the  Good Practice Reports have funding of $30,000 each.

Applications should be received no later than 5pm (AEST) Friday 28 June 2013.
