This Fellowship aimed to provide practitioners in the field of Indigenous teaching with a set of ‘research-based, practical exemplars for good practice’. Fifteen suggested approaches to indigenous teaching are provided on the fellowship website which also includes a comprehensive resources section.
The Resource Library contains a collection of higher education learning and teaching materials flowing from projects funded by the Commonwealth of Australia including those from the Australian Learning and Teaching Council.
Materials identified as good practice are indentified. Read more...

Designing a diverse, future-orientated vision for undergraduate psychology in Australia
This impressive resource, developed following extensive consultations with key stakeholders, presents a comprehensive list of key attributes psychology students can develop during their undergraduate studies. By extending the principles of the scientist-practitioner model, there is no doubt that it will become a valuable research-led resource for both students and teachers of psychology.
This resource clearly delineates what will be learned, how it will be learned, what the learning outcomes will be, and how these apply in both the traditional psychology laboratory and in real world settings. This juxtaposition of laboratory and real world learning applications provides added value by challenging students to think more widely. In doing so, it enhances the identity of psychology. Accordingly, the resource is also relevant to students and teachers in Psychiatry and the allied health disciplines.
It may be necessary, however, to make explicit the academic background required for using this resource. For example, it may be essential to flag that empirical skills are a pre-requisite given that Research Methods in Psychology (Attribute 2) are traditionally quantitative. That undergraduate students are becoming interested in qualitative research approaches raises the question of why this is not included in Attribute 2. This is even more questionable given the learning outcome of describing and applying the different research methods used by psychologists and demonstrating practical skills in laboratory-based and other psychological research.
The theoretical orientation and attributes reflect the resource's orientation to a specific cohort of students, which in this discipline is not necessarily a bad thing.

Good Practice Report: Student transition into higher education
This good practice report, commissioned by the ALTC, provides a summative evaluation of useful outcomes and good practices from ALTC projects and fellowships on student transition into higher education. The report contains:
- a summative evaluation of the good practices and key outcomes for teaching and learning from completed ALTC projects and fellowships
- a literature review of the good practices and key outcomes for teaching and learning from national and international research
- the proposed outcomes and resources for teaching and learning which will be produced by current incomplete ALTC projects and fellowships
- identifies areas in which further work or development are appropriate.

Assessment policy and impact on practice: sharpening the policy review process in Australian universities
Recent changes to institutional assessment policies have sought to align content, intended outcomes, pedagogies and assessment practices. This project developed a set of practical guidelines for reviewing and analysing assessment policies in Australian universities. The report focused upon assessment policy review and analysis as a process, and a framework for review of learning and teaching policy was developed.
Rewarding and recognising quality teaching in higher education through systemic implementation of indicators and metrics on teaching and teacher effectiveness

- The following substantial reports were released from this this project.
- Eight universities conducted pilot projects and the reports which are available here.
COMPASS directions: Leading the integration of a competency based assessment tool in speech pathology learning and teaching
The purpose of this project was to build the capacity of speech pathology academic and clinical education leaders to integrate COMPASS™, a newly developed competency based assessment tool, within learning, teaching and assessment practices in curriculum across 13 higher education programs, using assessment of work-integrated learning as a focus.

Creative & Performing Arts Learning and Teaching Academic Standards Statement
Academic standards covering programs of study for bachelor and coursework masters degrees in creative writing; dance; drama and performance; music and sound; screen and media; and visual art. These standards were developed as part of a demonstration project funded by the Australian Government in 2010 and facilitated by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council. Academic institutions and teachers, professional bodies, accreditation bodies, employers and graduates participated in the development of minimum threshold learning outcomes for the discipline.
