OLT Citations

Citations For Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning

Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning offered by the Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT)  recognise and reward the diverse contributions made by individuals and teams to the quality of student learning.

Citations are awarded to those who have made a significant contribution to the quality of student learning in a specific area of responsibility over a sustained period, whether they are academic staff, general staff, sessional staff or institutional associates.

Citations provide an opportunity for distinctive institutional missions, values and priorities in learning and teaching to be recognised. Citations are awarded for a range of contributions to student learning, both direct and indirect.

Up to 150 Citations, including the Early Career category, with prize value of $10,000 each, are available nationally in 2016. The maximum number of citation nominations the University can nominate is six. Nominees, who have no more than five years’ experience teaching in a higher education setting, which includes tutoring and part time teaching, may apply for an Early Career Citation.
