Learning and Teaching for Sustainability Innovation Projects 2016

The Office of Dean Learning and Teaching has coordinated the funding for Learning and Teaching for Sustainability (LTfS) Innovation Projects since 2014, with funding provided via RMIT’s Sustainability Committee. In 2016 three Learning and Teaching for Sustainability Innovation Projects are available and they will be allocated on a basis of one per Academic College.

The primary focus of these LTfS Innovation Projects is to enhance strategic, high-quality curriculum design and development for multidisciplinary digital learning, teaching and assessment. They are to be created and developed collaboratively, with a professional or industry focus, for the maximisation of the students’ learning experience, outcomes and graduate employability.

The aim is that they will enhance Learning and Teaching for Sustainability in the curriculum across RMIT within multi disciplines and also within the global sustainability, professional and tertiary sectors.

These innovation projects are an integral component of our current LTfS work to reinvigorate interactive, experiential digital learning and assessment in alignment with RMIT's Sustainability Policy, action items from the RMIT Sustainability Action Plan (to 2020) and our new Strategic Plan Ready for Life and Work: Shaping RMIT to 2020.

Application forms [PDF, 107 KB, 4 pages] and further information can be obtained from: learningteaching.sustainability@rmit.edu.au or x58377.

The closing date for applications is 5pm Friday 8th April 2016.
