Awards for Learning and Teaching
Learning and teaching awards are an important part of recognising the contributions of our staff and promoting scholarly teaching, program excellence and initiatives that enhance learning. The process of applying for an award provides an opportunity to reflect on the principles and scholarship that underpin your practice. The receipt of an award is evidence of your impact on student learning and is an important component of a teaching portfolio and career advancement.
