Good Practice Awards

The 2021 Global 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).

2021 Global Academic Development Good Practice Award finalists will be invited to present and be recognised at the Advancing Academic Development Event on 3rd November. Finalists and award winners will be featured on the Advancing Academic Development website (AAD)  Good Practices page and CAULLT website.

These principles are clearly and succinctly explained and underpinned by cited scholarship (reference to the literature/ precedents in practice).

  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.)
