Applications are invited for the Teaching Exchange Fellowship Scheme, which was introduced by the Teaching and Learning Quality Committee in 2010-11.

Objectives
The Scheme aims to enhance the scholarship of teaching at the University through enabling academic staff members to share experience and to collaborate on teaching and curriculum development initiatives at reputable universities where excellent pedagogical practices or curriculum innovation are being implemented, and to facilitate reciprocal visits to the University by academic staff of these institutions. The Scheme is a measure also to ensure that our curriculum and pedagogy are benchmarked against international best practice.

Eligibility
All full-time teaching staff with a minimum of two years of service at the University are eligible to apply.

Deadline for Application
Interested colleagues are encouraged to attend the CETL Teaching Exchange Fellowship Scheme Seminar at January 22, 2014, which will provide an overview of the Scheme and advice on the preparation of the application.
