UOW FSA's call- let us know if you are keen

Its time to start thinking about FSA's for teaching and learning next year.
Check out some of our past work at

Please note: Expressions of Interest for FSA support during 2012 are required to be submitted prior to 5pm, 21st October 2011.

Do you have an idea that will enhance your teaching and support student learning?
Would you like help to develop the program or resources?

If yes, consider submitting an application for a Faculty Service Agreement (FSA). We support Faculty Service Agreements projects at no cost, with the exception of consumables (eg multiple burning of DVD’s, printing of booklets etc), or where there is a direct cost (eg transport to off campus locations).

The FSA links Faculty Learning and Teaching priorities with staff expertise from CEDiR (Centre for Educational Development, Innovation and Recognition); CASR (Centre for Academic Systems and Resources) and LIFT (Learning, Innovation, Facilities and Technology). Examples of some of the projects which may be undertaken include assistance for eTeaching, flexible and multi-location teaching (including assessment or subject / curriculum redesign); video production; animation; graphic design; web design; database development and staff development.

The priority in 2012 is likely to be those FSA’s which aim to support staff in the implementation of sound pedagogical approaches utilising the new Learning Management System (UOW eLearning Space). There is still scope, however, for projects involving production, including animation, database development and video production to be undertaken as part of the FSA process.

If you or your teaching team would like to discuss an idea for an FSA, please email Chris Brewer(, to arrange a consultation with one of the Learning Designers.
