The Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education) and KPMG have partnered to deliver The 2018 KPMG Inspiring Teacher Award in a First Year Undergraduate Program. The award celebrates teachers who create rich learning environments and provide a consistently excellent educational experience for students.
The award recognises and celebrates teaching excellence and elevates the voice of first year undergraduate students, giving them the opportunity to vote for the teacher that has inspired them the most.
The award recipient will receive a $3,000 cash prize and certificate, to be presented at an awards lunch hosted by KPMG with senior representatives from KPMG and UNSW, leading industry representatives from the recipient’s discipline field and representation from the students that made the nomination.
In addition, KPMG will also determine with the award recipient whether access to the firm’s innovation experts and facilities (e.g. Innovation Lab, Insights Centre) will add value to the educational experience they are creating.
All 2018 UNSW students enrolled in a first year undergraduate program will be invited to vote to determine the recipient of The 2018 KPMG Inspired Teaching Award for Inspiring Teaching in a First Year Undergraduate Program.
Voting now open, closing on 14 September 2018.
We caught up with last year's recipient, Dr Daniel Mansfield from the School of Mathematics, to discuss how winning the award affected him and the important role the award plays for the University.
