Information about Office for Learning and Teaching Grants
The Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) offer the following grants:
- Innovation and Development Grants
- Seed Projects
- Extension Grants
- Commissioned Projects
Deakin Learning Futures (DLF) runs an internal endorsement procedure before submission to the Office for Learning and Teaching.
In 2013 the OLT requested changes to the administration of grants, requiring all grant applicants to advise the institution's Institutional Contact Officer (ICO) of their intention to submit. The ICO then provides to the OLT a list of applicants, grant type and project title. This is required for each Round of grants.
Grants submitted to the OLT and not on this list will not be accepted by the OLT.
Deakin's ICO is Lisé Baker, Learning Research and Evaluation Coordinator, Deakin Learning Futures. The grants endorsement procedure is administered by the Learning Research (LRE) and Evaluation team within DLF. The first point of contact is firstname.lastname@example.org and to obtain a Project Concept Form.
The LRE team provide assistance throughout the grant application procedure; proofing, compliance check (against the OLT instructions), review of the application, advice and DVC(E) endorsement. The final application compliance and submission to the OLT grants portal is the applicant's responsibility.
