The Faculty Teaching Award Scheme was established to recognize, encourage, and reward excellence in teaching and sustained involvement in disseminating and sharing the results of effective and innovative teaching. This emphasizes the University’s commitment to:
(a) foster teaching excellence;
(b) improve student learning;
(c) encourage innovative teaching; and
(d) provide leadership in sharing good teaching practices.
2. The awards also help to stimulate discussion within the University about the nature of teaching quality and encourage widespread sharing amongst staff.
