“The best aspect of AAUT is for the sector – recognising the excellence of our work, providing stretch targets to continue to challenge our practice, sharing excellence across the sector, placing the professionalism of our practice on the national stage. Celebrating the commitment and dedication of our higher education teaching.” – Assessor, 2019 AAUT round.
The Australian Awards for University Teaching (AAUT) were established in 1997 by the Australian Government to celebrate and reward excellence in university teaching. Since then, the Awards have become a valued form of recognition for university educators Australia wide.
The AAUT recognise the impact that educators have on the learning and teaching experiences and outcomes of university students. They celebrate and reward programs and practices that support students and enhance learning. They promote excellence in learning and teaching in all aspects of higher education. Recipients, with the support of their institutions, contribute to systemic change in learning and teaching through the ongoing sharing and dissemination of knowledge. This year, there are four Award types promoting and recognising excellence in learning and teaching.
