The Global Teaching Excellence Award (GTEA) was introduced last year by the Higher Education Academy (HEA). This award recognises and celebrates institution-wide commitment to the pursuit of outstanding approaches to teaching and learning excellence. We are delighted to have been notified that UNSW has been internationally recognised as a finalist for 2018.
The enactment of the UNSW 2025 strategy through a diverse range of educational excellence initiatives helped to secure this finalist position. A few of the initiatives named were the new Education Focused academic roles, the Foundations in University Learning and Teaching program, the annual Learning and Teaching Forum together with the inaugural Inspired Learning Summit, The Connections seminars, the Inspired Learning Initiative with its Digital Uplift program, the Scientia Education Academy, Peer Review of Teaching and more.
