JCU Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning
JCU recognises outstanding practice in teaching and scholarship in many ways, and the Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning is one such example.
Citations recognise and reward the diverse contributions that individuals and teams make to the quality of student learning in a specific area of responsibility over a sustained period. The JCU citations program is designed to prepare and support staff intending to apply for an Australian Awards for University Teaching (AAUT) Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning, offered by Universities Australia.
The winners of this award will be chosen by a panel of university teaching and learning stakeholders. Winners will be recognised as leaders of learning and teaching at JCU through a celebratory event in October, and will be invited to join the Community of Learning and Teaching Excellence.
