Teaching Excellence Program (formerly FET)

(Formerly known as Foundations for Effective Teaching)

Overview

The aim of the program is to orient you to the key themes that shape learning and teaching at Monash University.

The program concentrates on important and useful elements of educational practice - across teaching, learning, assessment and feedback and asks you to consider these in relation to your own educational work.

Through this program, you will develop a statement that describes your teaching approach and consider its alignment with the way in which you design active and student-centred learning and assessment.

You will reflect on teaching practice and set the foundation for your ongoing professional learning about teaching.

The Teaching Excellence Program has been designed, so that upon successful completion of this program it can lead to HEA Fellowship (FHEA) with Advance HE.

This program is only offered to academic staff for whom the Teaching Excellence Program (TEP) is a requirement as part of their probation or contractual conditions of the University.

Staff may apply for an alternative pathway to complete the module Teaching Excellence Program (TEP) based on prior completion of an equivalent accredited course at another tertiary institution, undertaken no longer than 10 years ago (e.g. Graduate Certificate of Academic Practice, Graduate Certificate of Higher Education). If you wish to apply for this alternative pathway email the MEA at mea@monash.edu
