Congratulations to our latest award recipients

We wouldn’t have great teaching without great teachers, inspiring their students and innovating in so many elements of their practice.

That’s why it’s so important to recognise and celebrate examples of great teaching, through the annual Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Learning and Teaching. 

These Awards will be formally presented at the 2015 Staff Awards Ceremony in November. Please join with me in celebrating these exceptional teachers! It’s great to work among so many passionate and talented people. Keep up the great work.
