We extend a warm welcome to all James Cook University staff to show your support to the recipients of these important awards as we strive for excellence in learning & teaching at James Cook University.

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

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

James Cook University 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, nine Citations (valued at $4,000 each) were awarded across the six Colleges at 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 $10,000 to support further professional development.

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.
