The Faculty of Arts, Business, Law and Education supports visiting researchers both nationally and internationally through our fellowships. These enable visitors to pursue UWA-based research and share their experience with staff, students and the community with lectures and seminars.
FABLE Fellowship Program
Applications for the 2019 Faculty of Arts, Business, Law and Education Teaching Fellowship Scheme are now closed.
The Teaching Fellowship Scheme provides PhD students with the opportunity to undergo teaching and learning professional development while employed in a casual teaching contract.
We nurture academics and offer full support throughout their careers. We value their commitment to lifelong learning and offer ongoing personal and professional development opportunities as well as the best learning and teaching training available. Our academics are motivated to do their best for students by being the best they can be.
The Teaching Fellowship Scheme has three objectives:
- Develop the teaching and learning skills of PhD students, particularly students who intend to pursue an academic career or look at teaching as a way for developing people skills for a career outside of academia
- Enhance the teaching quality provided by PhD students and eventual graduates, employed on teaching contracts across the facility
- Assist with the recruitment of PhD students by providing an attractive professional development opportunity
