Community of practice

Once you become an EFS Fellow, you are encouraged to contribute to the ANU EFS by actively engaging in activities that support the development of new Fellows and promotion of the scheme. Activities include mentoring EFS applicants, assessing applications, guest speaking, and promoting the EFS in your college.

EFS Committee

The ANU EFS is governed by a Committee, which is steered by four Co-chairs. Consult our our ANU Committee page for the Committee Charter, member list, and upcoming meeting dates.

EFS mentors

EFS mentors support prospective EFS applicants on a one-on-one basis. By doing so, they gain and improve skills in mentoring in a higher-education setting while being supported by the EFS team. They are also offered opportunities to connect with a teaching-focused community within ANU. They have opportunities to network with other EFS mentors (including senior academics and members of professional staff) and establish a strong working relationship with an EFS applicant. By supporting someone with their EFS application, they make a tangible difference to someone’s career in higher education.

EFS assessors

EFS assessors provide assessments of EFS applications. By doing so, they gain and improve skills in assessing in a higher-education setting while being supported by the EFS team. They are also offered opportunities to connect with a teaching-focused community within ANU. They have opportunities to network with other EFS assessors (including senior academics and members of professional staff). And finally, by assessing EFS applications, they make a tangible difference to the applicants’ careers in higher education.

Other roles

You may also be interested in sharing your experiences in teaching and/or supporting learning in higher education in other ways, e.g. by co-facilitating an EFS workshop or by leading a working group.
