Improving Programming Teaching via Peer Tutoring (potential title)

Estimated Finish Date:
3 – Chief Investigators (if there are more than two CIs, list the entire team in Section D)Investigator 1 Investigator 2Name Name Current Position Current Position Dept./Program Dept./Program Faculty Faculty
4 – Executive Summary (10 lines maximum) Summarise in plain English the project aims, significance and expected outcomes.  Complete this after addressing parts 5-10 in Section B.


5 – Project Description for Publication (7 lines maximum) Summarise the project for publication on the ESDF website.
SECTION B: Written Proposal (4 page limit)Please address in numerical order.6 – Nature of the problem the current project addresses (Approximately 200 words)Describe the issue or problem in learning and teaching that your project is addressing (e.g. student engagement, use of social media, group work, etc.).  Try to be specific about the way the issue
appears in your situation. Include reference to how this project builds on previous funded and unfunded work by members of the project team, other members of the university (e.g. past ESDF or
Faculty Scholar projects) or reported in the literature or the OLT website
7 – Objectives and anticipated outcomes of the project (Approximately 100 words)Clearly state how your project is addressing the problem.  No more than 3 – 5 dot points should be sufficient for a project of this size.
8 – Alignment with ESDF priority areasIdentify the priority area the project is addressing.
9 – Alignment with faculty / university strategic plans (Approximately 150 words)Be explicit about how the project contributes to a strategic goal of the university or faculty, quoting the part of the relevant strategic plans or FEC or unit minutes.
10 – Project method and consultation (Approximately 300 words)Explain how you will carry out the project to completion, providing references to similar projects or uses of the method (e.g. interviews, intervention in group work, workshop with colleagues,
collection and sharing of materials, preparation on new resources). How and when will you consult with relevant people on campus? What will be the nature of the consultation? It is strongly
recommended that you consult with those leading strategic initiatives before submitting a proposal.
11 – Project plan and timelineThis should reflect the process, including the outcomes and deliverables.  Make a summary timeline in a basic two-column table even though a very detailed one may be necessary for use by project
Action/Event/Milestone Target Date
12 – Deliverables and dissemination strategy (Approximately 150 words)What will you have to share with others at the end of the project? How will the outcome of the project be shared with potential users? In learning and teaching projects, one mark of success is how
widely the improvement or innovation is taken up by others.  At the national sector level, grant recipients are expected to submit a plan for active sharing of the project findings and outcomes
through meetings or workshops.  At UOW sharing may take the form of reports to an FEC or at a Faculty meeting, a workshop with colleagues interested in the same issues or the contribution to UOW
learning and teaching event as well as any conference presentations or journal publications. Refer to the national Dissemination Framework for advice on how you might take an evidence-based
approach to building dissemination into your project design
13 – References to literature cited (Approximately half a page)Include a standard reference list in alphabetical order using a conventional citation style.  This should indicate your familiarity with theoretical or practical approaches to the problem this
proposal addresses, NOT an exhaustive literature review. ESDF grants will not fund literature reviews.
14 – Wider outcomes of the project/project impact (Approximately 150 words)What will be the next stage of this project? Highlight the potential for expansion across UOW or the discipline, including the potential for the project to develop into an application for national
grant funding.  If this is unlikely, briefly explain why. Refer to the national Impact Management Planning and Evaluation Ladder (IMPEL) Model and incorporate the model into your response
15 – Constraints around the project (add rows as necessary)All proposed projects face risks that could compromise the successful completion of the project.  List a few of the most obvious risks and briefly propose a strategy for continuing the project even
in a changed form in the face of that contingency. Use the following table to display this information.
Anticipated Risk Impact on Implementation (low, medium, high) Contingency Strategy
SECTION C: Budget and Budget JustificationPersonnel – include on costs for any casual employees (research assistant, participants, Learning Development, Learning Design, Academic Development Unit, librarians, technical support or other
support services) Consider how the projected will be managed especially if it is expensive or complex. UOW salary scales including on-costs are available at Support (additional to standard academic infrastructure and materials; include extraordinary in-kind support such as provision of a workstation).  Project Activities (consultation with colleagues, focus groups with students, travel to remote sites for tutor workshops, etc). Note: Conference travel will not be funded. Catering will not be
funded unless the event is integral to the successful completion of the project. 19a – Budget Grant In-Kind TotalPERSONNEL Sub total PROJECT SUPPORT Sub total PROJECT ACTIVITIES Sub total Total per Stage ESDF Other TotalTOTAL PROJECT BUDGET
19b – Budget JustificationExplain the tasks or activities under the same three headings as the budget.  For example, what will the research assistant or project manager do?  Project team members can be bought out of
specific tasks (e.g. tutorials or marking at the standard casual rates) to provide more time for the project. Why do you need to purchase particular software or minor equipment?  Why is travel to the remote sites more useful than videoconferencing with the same people?  Colleagues will not be paid consultation fees.
