PPLP for Grants

The Peer Professional Learning Program (PPLP) for Grants is a MyLO resource provided by the Tasmanian Institute of Learning and Teaching.

PPLP for Grants seeks to:

  • assist staff to develop learning and teaching project ideas in line with national and institutional strategic priorities;
  • support staff to better understand grant program guidelines; 
  • build the capacity of staff to write and peer review learning and teaching grants; and
  • draw on the experiences of previous grant winners and TILT support staff to enhance institutional understanding of learning and teaching projects and the grant writing process.

The modules Getting Ready and Getting Writing were originally designed to assist staff writing national grant applications to:

  • critically review project ideas and determine whether or not proposals are likely to be funded;
  • determine the point at which they will be ready to commence writing proposals; and
  • frame their proposal and structure their writing in an effective way.

Aspects of these modules may still be of assistance in writing Teaching Development Grant applications.

The Teaching Development Grants module provides a series of pages that guide applicants through developing and writing up a project proposal against one of the four Teaching Development Grant categories. This resource should be read in conjunction with the TDG guidelines, which also contain the relevant templates for the applications.
