Celebrating the 2022 ACU Citation Winners

ACU Citations are designed to recognise and reward staff who have made a significant contribution to student learning at ACU. Recipients must distinguish how their learning and teaching aligns with the distinctive mission, values and strategies of ACU and must showcase their:

  1. influence on student learning, student engagement or the overall student experience
  2. recognition from fellow staff, the institution, and/or the broader community
  3. sustained contribution for a period of no less than three years (two years for early career or sessional staff)
  4. creativity, imagination or innovation, irrespective of whether the approach involves traditional learning environments or technology-based developments.

The Centre for Education and Innovation with the Awards and Grants Assessment Group wish to congratulate the following recipients of the 2022 ACU Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning.

Dr Victoria Carruthers (General), For innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to teaching art history that foster empathy and inspire transformational learning by encouraging imagination, curiosity, critical thinking and self-awareness.
