These projects ask staff to adopt five of ten digital initiatives in their subjects with the intent to retain some of these initiatives once campus-based learning is reintroduced. Project leads are provided with $5,000 to support them in their role to undertake the project. Projects are initiated through the Learning and Teaching Initiative (LTI) grants.
