ISV congratulates Teaching Innovation Fellowship recipients

The Victorian Academy of Teaching and Leadership recently announced the inaugural recipients of the Teaching Innovation Fellowships.
The fellowships were awarded to alumni of the Academy’s Teaching Excellence Program (TEP) who have identified an opportunity to improve teaching, learning, inclusion or wellbeing with an innovation project that will positively impact students.
