Leading Learning and Teaching (LLT)

What?

The LLT program supports experienced academics and senior professional staff in leading and/or influencing learning and teaching at the strategic college and/or program level.

LLT provides weekly complex scenarios for participants to “unpack” and provide a set of recommendations in light of ANU’s strategic priorities and the impact on learning and teaching, with consideration to the HE context, relevant policies and benefits for staff, students and the college. 

Facilitated by some of our most experienced and senior leaders across a range of disciplines, participants will receive advice and guidance as they focus on interrelated scenario topics such as student experience, quality learning and teaching, digital technology, graduate attributes and leading change in HE.

LLT is offered once each semester through internal selection processes and creates a fun opportunity for emerging leaders to collaborate and network with peers and senior leaders on topics identified in the ANU strategic plan as relevant to learning and teaching and the student academic experience.

LLT participants – selection process 

Expression of Interest is managed by the college ADE. As a guideline, LLT participants should align with one of the following:

  • Employed in a senior academic (C+) or professional (SM 1+) leadership role at ANU  
  • Program convenors and/or senior professional staff with more than 5 years FTE HE employment experience 
  • Completion of ELT and ALT plus more than 3 years FTE teaching experience as a course convener 
  • 5 years FTE course convening experience and have held EFS Fellow for two years 
 

If you are interested in participating in this program, please get in touch with your college ADE directly. In some cases ADEs will approach members of staff to offer the opportunity to participate in LLT.
