Education Exchange Scheme

The Monash Warwick Alliance Education Exchange Scheme (EES) has been established to provide academic and professional staff involved in learning and teaching with the opportunity to:

  • share enhanced and evidence-based practice that supports the student experience;
  • develop and review innovative educational pedagogical activity;
  • establish connections to leverage expertise in education across both universities;
  • build or extend their international profile in education; and
  • add a learning and teaching dimension to existing research collaborations.

The Monash Education Academy and the Warwick International Higher Education Academy work together in facilitating productive exchanges around targeted and innovative programs or projects.

The Program supports exchange that enable Monash staff to:

  1. undertake a residency at Warwick;
  2. invite Warwick staff to undertake a residency at Monash;
  3. invite colleagues from a third institution to undertake a residency at Monash, Warwick or both universities, as part of a wider program of Alliance international engagement.

Visiting Scholars will be funded up to $10,000 each. Residencies will normally be of 2-4 weeks in duration.
