OLT Awards for Programs that Enhance Learning

Program Awards recognise learning and teaching support programs and services that make an outstanding contribution to the quality of student learning and the quality of the student experience of higher education. The programs and services that receive Program Awards must have demonstrated their effectiveness through rigorous evaluation and will set benchmarks for similar activities in other institutions.

There are eight Program Award categories:

  • Widening participation.
  • Educational partnerships and collaborations with other organisations,
  • The first-year experience.
  • Flexible learning and teaching.
  • Innovation in curricula, learning and teaching.
  • Postgraduate education.
  • Services supporting student learning.
  • Global citizenship and internationalisation.

Up to 12 Awards with a prize value of $25,000 each will be granted across the eight categories in 2014. The University can submit only one nomination in each category.
