Vice-Chancellor's awards for teaching excellence
These awards promote, recognise and reward excellence in coursework teaching.
There are eight award categories:
- early career – open to staff with no more than five years’ experience
- biological sciences, health and related studies
- humanities and the arts
- law, economics, business and related studies
- physical sciences and related studies
- social and behavioural sciences
- Indigenous education
- priority area – high impact intervention for progression, retention, and attainment.
All nominees will be assessed on the evidence they provide on the four following areas:
- approach to teaching and the support of learning that influences, motivates and inspires students to learn
- development of curricula, resources or services that reflect a command of the field
- evaluation practices that bring about improvements in teaching and learning
- innovation, leadership or scholarship that has influenced and enhanced learning and teaching and/or the student experience.
Award winners will be required to present a paper and/or a workshop on their award-winning practice.
Based on Panel recommendations, the Vice-Chancellor will award up to five excellence awards each year. The winners will receive $10,000 and an award certificate. It is anticipated that awards will be distributed across the categories.
