    Abstract

    The South Australia/Northern Territory Promoting Excellence Network (SANTPEN) receives project funding from the Australian Government’s Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) to work collaboratively to promote engagement with OLT’s programs, particularly teaching awards and grants. SANTPEN’s six institutions (four universities, one institute an done college) are diverse in size and in their missions and several thousand kilometres separate the South Australian institutions from those in the Northern Territory. Between the institutions,also, are varying degrees of experience and success with OLT programs. In addition, the substantive work of SANTPEN team members at each institution is approached quite differently with some being in senior academic roles with wider responsibilities while others are in more narrowly defined professional and administrative roles. All this presents the team with challenges and opportunities when it comes to their project work.
