Citations for outstanding teaching recipients

The Centre for Education and Innovation (CEI) extends its congratulations to this year’s recipients of the ACU Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning. Discover who has been recognised and rewarded. 

To be considered for a citation, applicants were required to first seek a nomination from either their Associate Dean of Learning & Teaching (or equivalent), Head of School, Director, or manager. After obtaining a nomination, candidates selected from one of the four key criteria and addressed with substantial evidence how their contribution has:

  • influenced student learning, student engagement or the overall student experience
  • gained recognition from fellow staff, the institution, and/or the broader community
  • been sustained for a period of no less than three years (two years for early career or sessional staff)
  • shown creativity, imagination or innovation, irrespective of whether the approach involves traditional learning environments or technology-based developments.

In partnership with the Awards and Grants Assessment Group, CEI wishes to congratulate the following recipients:
