Federal Member for Bonner, Ross Vasta today congratulated Griffith University, which has received $467,000 in Commonwealth funding to promote excellence in learning and teaching in higher education.

Mr Vasta welcomed the Government’s announcement of $4.7 million in funding as part of its ongoing commitment to maintaining a world class higher education sector by developing the best teaching and student learning experiences.

This represents funding under the 2015 Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) national fellowships programme as well as the first round of recipients in 2015 under the OLT grants programme.

Griffith University will use the prestigious funding to identify possible post-practicum interventions aimed at maximising learning outcomes from student work experiences and securing learning outcomes associated with graduate employability.

“This funding will allow collaboration with other university partners to enhance academic development and course design and improve the experience of students in our higher education institutions,” Mr Vasta said.

“These investments will also help Griffith University embrace emerging technologies for course delivery and student support, allowing a better alignment between higher education and industry needs.”

“We are committed to strengthening our higher education sector and the education that it offers to our students, and improving its global competitiveness.”
