Teaching award nominations
A call for nominations is made to students and staff twice a year. This year, nominations will close in late December 2019.
Heads of School, Deans, and Program Heads are strongly encouraged to nominate individuals or teams within their divisions, based on performance management and eVALUate outcomes. Staff wishing to progress through the awards pathway should discuss nomination with their line manager.
Students are particularly encouraged to nominate their excellent teaching staff.
Nominations for all categories of award must be made online using the Teaching Award nomination form.
All staff who have been nominated for an award will be contacted by the Tasmanian Institute of Learning & Teaching in early January and invited to attend a Teaching Awards Workshop.
Nominees attending the Teaching Awards Workshop will be provided with information about the application process, the eligibility criteria for each award and the levels of support available to them in developing their applications.
Applicants should read the eligibility criteria for each of the award categories to help determine which award they should apply for.
- Teaching Merit Certificates
- Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning
- Teaching Excellence Awards
- Vice-Chancellor's Medal for Sustained Commitment to Teaching Excellence
Applicants for Citations and Teaching Excellence Awards will have up to six months to complete their applications. During this time, applicants should work closely with the Tasmanian Institute of Learning and Teaching to ensure their application addresses the specified criteria, and has enough evidence to support their claims. Applicants are also encouraged to participate in PPLP for Awards.
