Nominations for 2019 closed on Friday, 20th September

The 2019 Australasian Academic Development Good Practice Awards seek to identify leaders and innovators in academic development by recognising good practice for enhancing practice across the dimensions of teaching, learning, and scholarship. The awards are supported by the Council of Australasian University Leaders in Learning and Teaching (CAULLT) and QLD HERDSA.

Award winners will also be showcased at the national CAULLT conference on 7th November, 2019, and their case examples will be shared on the Good Practices page.

  2. Impact: The scale and reach of your good practice are outlined and evidence of its value, impact, and influence on the learning and teaching practice of others is provided. (Scale and reach will be relative to opportunity and the purpose of the initiative.)
