Action-Learning Projects

SaMnet is fostering a set of action learning projects as way of building leadership capacity among academics in science and mathematics. Initial Proposals were due 10 Dec 2011. Further expressions of interest were accepted June 2012.

The aim is to enable innovative and effective lecturers to improve the practice of colleagues and to change the culture of science teaching, generally. We will work with each participant to align their effort with local needs, such as the key performance indicators (KPIs) of heads of school and deans.

Those engaged in these action learning projects will:
  • Be supported by a local team, assembled with SaMnet’s help - mentor, associate dean, academic developer.
  • Attend local and national workshops on leadership development.
  • Be guided in authoring and publishing case studies on organisational change for two Australian journals in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL).
