Internationalisation of the Curriculum Initiative Grants

Friday 22 March 2019 2:34pm

Applications are invited for Internationalisation of the Curriculum Initiative Grants. If you are a full or part-time member of staff for whom teaching or the co-ordination of academic courses is a substantial part of your job, and are interested in research that will lead to significant developments in the curriculum or your teaching practice (including content, delivery method and/or assessment practice), you may be eligible for the above grants.

Specifically, these grants are intended to enable University of Otago staff to collaborate with colleagues from an overseas partner institution on projects that demonstrate the potential to contribute to the University’s mission and strategic imperatives, particularly those related to achieving excellence in research-informed teaching and contributing to international progress. Priority will be given to applications that involve collaboration with staff from institutions overseas with which Otago has a current partnership agreement.

Applications will be considered at the May Internationalisation Committee meeting (due date 24 April 2019). Applications should be endorsed by your HOD and Pro-Vice-Chancellor, and submitted to Lynda McIver (, Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (External Engagement). On completion of the project, recipients will be required to submit a written report to the Internationalisation Committee on the use and outcomes of the grant.
