The Curriculum Sharing Project is a new education program of the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) encouraging teachers to share curriculum units they have written and taught on Australian wartime and peacekeeping history. DVA will provide classroom teachers with up to $1000 and pre-service teachers with up to $500 for curriculum units that are successfully selected and approved for sharing online.

The lead up to the Anzac Centenary will provide Australian teachers with an opportunity to focus their learning activities on studies of the Great War and other significant anniversaries in our wartime history. This project allows teachers to share pedagogically sound and educationally strong curriculum units with their peers.

In 2014, the selected and approved curriculum units will be available for free download on the soon to be developed Online Education Portal as part of the Anzac Centenary.
