ECU Fogarty Learning Centre
Our partnership with Edith Cowan University to improve teaching and learning in WA
The Fogarty Foundation has partnered with Edith Cowan University since 2003 with the establishment of scholarships and prizes in the School of Education and the creation of the ECU Fogarty Learning Centre.
The Learning Centre develops and tests ideas to improve teaching and learning in WA, enabling long term impact on teacher education. Scholarships are provided annually to teachers to undertake post graduate studies in the Graduate Diploma or Masters of Education Learning Difficulties.
Having trained specialists in this important area of education, is of great benefit for the students with learning difficulties and as mentors for other teachers in the schools with which they work. These scholarships and prizes celebrate educational excellence and a commitment to teaching and recognise the important role of teachers in our society. In 2018, the Fogarty Foundation awarded 8 scholarships, with 15 being awarded in 2019.
