ANU Educational Fellowship Scheme

 

Welcome to the ANU Educational Fellowship Scheme (EFS) where we champion teaching excellence. We provide educators with internationally-accredited professional recognition of their experience and expertise in university teaching. The Australian National University (ANU) is able to offer the EFS to its staff by being a subscriber to the Higher Education Academy (HEA), an independent, non-profit organisation committed to world-class teaching in higher education. For more information on the EFS and the HEA, please go to the about page.

This site aims to provide information that will help you better understand the EFS and help you apply for fellowship. Please use the menu bar on the top right to navigate. You will find information about the four EFS categories and how to apply for the right one. There are also face to face modules available to ANU staff throughout the year, at the ANU Centre for Higher Education, Learning and Teaching (CHELT). You will find Upcoming Events to the right. For more information, please go to the events page.

How much does it cost?

Applying for the EFS is free of charge for ANU staff. An ANU email address is a prerequisite for applicants.

Under certain circumstances, a personalised developmental service is also available for applicants from institutions outside ANU. Please contact efs@anu.edu.au for more information.

You will find the latest EFS news in the EFS Newsletter, from updates from our Fellows, events and workshops, to awards and other snippets. Stay informed and let us know if you have some news or ideas you’d like to share by emailing efs@anu.edu.au.
