Teaching Excellence Program

  • 6 month program followed by an optional Fellowship submission period
  • Open to academic staff during their period of probation for whom the Teaching Excellence Program is listed as a condition of their probation
  • Completion of TEP offers a pathway to HEA Fellowship (FHEA)

This program is designed for academic staff who are in their period of probation at Monash University.

Teaching Excellence Program (TEP) is a practice-based program. The six month program aims to introduce staff to key practices and procedures that support teaching at Monash. It consists of two workshops, online learning and the completion of a portfolio of six assessment tasks.

The program relies on current participation in learning and teaching practice so that staff are able to draw on authentic practice to evidence their claim for fellowship through the assessment tasks. It is assumed that staff are engaged in all aspects related to teaching for at least 60 hours over the time they are participating in the program.

We have designed TEP so that successful completion of this program can lead to Fellowship (FHEA).
