Thinking about applying for a Teaching Award?
Teaching Awards recognise and reward a variety of activities and initiatives which contribute to excellence in teaching and learning.
The University of Sydney Vice Chancellor's Awards for Teaching Excellence are offered for outstanding teaching, support of the student experience, excellence in research higher degree supervision and systems which achieve collective excellence in learning and teaching. If you, or a team of which you are a member, are responsible for activities of this kind which have an impact on student learning and outcomes then you might consider applying for an award. Applications which focus on team initiatives and co-operative activity are welcome.
The closing dates for the 2014 awards and the dates for the workshops which provide information for those interested in applying will be announced on the ITL web page in February. The workshops can also be useful for those thinking of applying in a future year. The dates are dependent on information being available from the Office of Teaching and Learning (OLT) about their award dates for 2014. The OLT awards include the prestigious Citations and Teaching Excellence and Program Awards. Dates for the university selection process for nominations for the OLT Citations and Awards will also be available on the ITL website.
The ITL webpages and subsequent pages are the first place to look for information about teaching awards. The information on these pages, including selection criteria, application forms and other resources is still relevant for 2014.
As with grant applications, the best applications are begun early so after a refreshing break you might like to start thinking and talking with others about preparing an application.[close]
