CDU teams recognised in national university teaching awards

Three teams from Charles Darwin University have received citations at the Australian Awards for University Teaching.

The awards, recognising the contribution of individuals and teams to the quality of student learning, were announced in an online ceremony on Wednesday 24 February 2021.

Welcoming viewers, University of Queensland Vice-Chancellor and Chair of Universities Australia, Professor Deborah Terry, said that COVID19 had brought the value of university teachers’ work into “stark relief”.

“I want to thank all university teachers for their hard work to help students adapt,” Professor Terry said.

“Our educators moved quickly to adapt to online learning. Their expertise made a difference…I’m honoured to recognise these inspiring educators today.”

Citations were awarded to CDU’s Academic Integrity Resource Development Team, IT Code Fair Team and the Literacy for Sustainability Team.

CDU Interim Vice-Chancellor Mike Wilson congratulated the teams who received three of the 65 citations awarded to university educators around Australia.

“We have amazing educators at CDU who are constantly looking for ways to diversify and innovate their teaching,” Professor Wilson said.

“We are a dual-sector university with a large complement of online learning and a significant commitment on the part of our educators to inspire and help our students achieve,” he said.

“I am very proud of what we achieve here – and especially congratulate the teams recognised in these national awards.”
