UQ is ambitious: seeking to be a major global university that is developing solutions to global problems and attracting students of the highest calibre who are destined and supported to become future leaders – locally, nationally and internationally. The University boasts a vibrant culture that embraces change. The Institute for Teaching and Learning Innovation (ITaLI) provides leadership, engagement and advocacy in educational innovation, teaching excellence and learning analytics, and aims to transform teaching and learning across the University through the delivery of faculty and executive prioritised, teaching and learning projects and services, including support to deliver UQ’s Student Strategy. ITaLI addresses critical areas of unmet need in teaching and learning by bridging the gap between the exponentially-expanding discipline of higher education teaching and the increasing complexity of teaching to assist University teaching staff and improve the learning experience of students
