“This is fantastic! It's such a valuable and effective way to help us. I can already see areas where thinking through this information in connection with the course content will lead to further queries and refinements.”

“I completed the ACU Grad Cert Higher Ed last year and was wondering if INSPIRE was going to be valuable but so far I’ve found it complements well what I learnt in the GCHEd rather than compete with it, but also that it would be useful in its own right for those who can’t or don’t want to do a full post grad program. The summaries your team has prepared are really good and I’ve been telling some of my colleagues already so I’m converted!”

“I have really enjoyed learning about the INSPIRE project. It has provided me with so many things/ideas/tips that I feel like I can incorporate into my teaching and class preparation…. and have evidence behind them!”

“INSPIRE has the potential to increase the quality of teaching across ACU, which can only be a good thing for staff and students, and our related industries. Better education = better graduates, which is certainly a good thing in my area (nursing). Imagine extrapolating that to better health outcomes across Australia, as ACU is the largest educator of nursing graduates in the country. The end result of better education goes way beyond the student experience in most courses at ACU”
