The Distinguished Teachers’ Award requires candidates not only to be outstanding teachers demonstrating successful and effective learning outcomes, but to have made a sustained contribution to teaching and learning through: demonstrated contribution to the innovation and improvement of teaching and learning practices within the candidate’s discipline or School and in community engagement; demonstrated contribution to curriculum and/or materials development in the discipline; and/or demonstrated reflection on practice translated into the scholarship of teaching.
The Distinguished Teachers’ Awards will be formally presented at the Graduation ceremonies of the subsequent year and shall be formally announced at the appropriate graduation ceremony. Awardees will be presented with a certificate by the Vice-Chancellor. The citation will appear in the graduation programme.
