Australian Awards for University Teaching

The Australian Awards for University Teaching (AAUT) recognise the impact that educators have on the learning and teaching experiences and outcomes of university students. They celebrate and reward programs and practices that support students and enhance learning. They promote excellence in learning and teaching in all aspects of higher education. Recipients, with the support of their institutions, contribute to systemic change in learning and teaching through the ongoing sharing and dissemination of knowledge. This year, there are four Award types promoting and recognising excellence in learning and teaching.

In consultation with Associate Deans Teaching & Learning, the University is inviting individual and teams to nominate for the 2023 AAUT.
