The 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.
Staff who have been recipients of the University of Melbourne Teaching Excellence Awards and who have been identified as being eligible for the AAUT, will be invited to submit an application. In consultation with Associate Deans Teaching & Learning, the University may also identify and invite additional individuals and teams to nominate for the AAUT.
The Melbourne CSHE is coordinating the AAUT nominations and will support nominees throughout the process. We invite nominations for the three award categories below:
Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning (Citations)
Recognition for the diverse contributions made to the quality of student learning.
Awards for Teaching Excellence (Teaching Awards)
Recognition for teachers who have contributed to enhancing the quality of learning and teaching in higher education.
Awards for Programs that Enhance Learning (Program Awards)
