We extend a warm welcome to all JCU staff to show your support to the recipients of these important awards as we strive for excellence in learning and teaching.

This year we are combining three separate Awards as we celebrate Learning and Teaching at JCU, these being the Inclusive Practice Acknowledgement Awards, the Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning, and the JCU Sessional Teaching Awards.

Inclusive Practice Acknowledgement Awards

These awards recognise interactions with students that are flexible, consultative, proactive and/or innovative. AccessAbility Services is a confidential support service for all students who identify with temporary or permanent injury, disability, illness or a health condition. Students who register with AccessAbility Services nominate JCU staff members who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to helping them achieve positive learning experiences and campus experiences in general.

Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning

JCU values excellence in teaching and learning practice through awarding Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning annually. Citations recognise and reward the diverse contributions that individuals and teaching teams make to the quality of student learning in a specific area of responsibility over a sustained period. This year, five Citations (valued at $4,000 each) were awarded across the Townsville and Cairns campuses.

Please join us as we recognise these staff members for their achievements. We will also be announcing the citation that is considered to have made the most outstanding contribution to student learning with an additional $4,000 to support further professional development.

Sessional Teaching Awards

The JCU Sessional Teaching Awards recognise the significant contributions made by sessional staff to the teaching and learning community of JCU. These awards are an initiative of the Division of Student Life, and are facilitated by the Directorate of Learning, Teaching and Student Engagement. The Awards are valued at $1,000 each.

Please join us to show your support for the sessional staff in your College as we announce this year's successful nominees.

Light refreshments will be provided after the award ceremony in Cairns and Townsville.

Please register to attend this event for catering purposes and don’t forget to add it to your diary.
