Faculty resources, support and training

Teaching and learning in your faculty

Teaching and learning (T&L) in each faculty is overseen by your Associate Dean Teaching and Learning (ADTL), Associate Heads of School T&L, and a Faculty T&L Committee.

As part of the ADTL portfolio, a wide range of faculty support services and resources is available to academic teaching staff to help build capacity and assist you to implement inclusive teaching practices.

These include: online teaching guides and resources, digital learning support, administrative assistance, and professional development training and workshops.

This page outlines:

  • where you can go to for teaching and learning support in your faculty
