Continued Academy membership

The Academy seeks to encourage and enhance leadership in learning and teaching at Griffith and advance staff professional learning by utilising the recognised expertise of exemplary Griffith educators. Academy fellowships are awarded for an initial three-year term. A condition of membership is that Academy members continue to demonstrate active contribution to and leadership in learning and teaching. Renewal of fellowships will be granted to fellows who continue to demonstrate exemplary contributions to learning and teaching during their previous term of fellowship.

The Griffith Learning and Teaching Academy Steering Committee and Learning Futures have developed a resource for Academy members that details a range of University-wide opportunities for Academy members to contribute/lead. There are also Group-based opportunities available. Fellows are invited to plan their contribution by selecting opportunities in relation to their career stage and the time commitment.
