$246,000 investment to help UWS lead world-class teaching and learning project

Thursday, 11 December 2014

Senator for Western Sydney, the Hon. Marise Payne, congratulated the University of Western Sydney (UWS), which has received a $246,000 investment from the Commonwealth Government to lead a world class teaching and learning project.

Senator Payne today welcomed the Government’s announcement of $5.8 million in funding for the higher education sector as part of its commitment to promoting excellence in learning and teaching.

UWS, working collaboratively with other Australian universities, will use the funds for its Strategic Priority Project: Enhancing Programs to Integrate Tertiary Outbound Mobility Experiences (EPITOME).

The project will involve researching the experiences of students participating in outbound mobility programs, to enable UWS to prepare students for careers in an increasingly global environment.

This investment will help UWS continue to play a leading role in tertiary education, which is one of our biggest growth sectors.

This is part of the second round of grants recipients in 2014 under the Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) grants programme.
