Teaching Fellowships

The University of Adelaide Stephen Cole the Elder Fellowships

As part of the Beacon of Enlightenment initiative, each faculty has received funding to appoint a Stephen Cole the Elder Fellow in 2015. The Fellow is responsible for providing leadership in relation to teaching practice and professional development within their faculty, particularly in the area of e-learning. They will identify and disseminate advancements and innovations in teaching practice and research, in order to build the capacity of teaching staff within the faculty.

The Fellow will liaise with key learning and teaching staff within the University, including Fellows from other faculties, Associate Deans (Learning and Teaching), and the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Student Learning), to establish cooperative working relationships across the University, that will enhance the student learning experience.
