The Australian Awards for University Teaching (AAUT) are highly prestigious and winning one can be a great career boost as well as provide recognition for the effort required to teach well.
Applying for an award therefore needs thinking and preparation before you start writing. This workshop covers the initial stages of thinking about applying, collecting evidence, and developing a case for a teaching award as well as encouraging applicants towards the writing of an application.
You will find this workshop useful in focusing on what’s required for an application and beginning the process of doing this, whether you are interested in making an application next year or in the future.
