TLDG wins Carrick funding 


Charles Darwin University's Teaching, Learning and Development Group has secured $220,000 in funding from the Carrick Institute.

The Carrick funding was won through the Institute’s Promoting Excellence Initiative.

The initiative has been established to help facilitate the development of institutional strategies that support staff in making high-quality submissions to the Carrick Institute’s grants scheme, awards and other initiatives.

The funding has been used to employ project officer Sharon Watson, who will work with Professor Kym Fraser, Director TLDG, and Associate Professor Tony Gilding to build CDU’s knowledge of how to successfully develop Carrick grant and award applications.

They will also identify current best practice in areas relevant to the University’s Student Experience Project, and identify ways to document evidence of academic teaching enhancement through teaching portfolios linked to the University’s recognition and reward structures.
