JCU hits ‘em for six
James Cook University is again toasting its success, winning a clean sweep of national teaching and learning awards.
JCU is one of two Australian universities to win all of the six possible Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning.
The Deputy Vice Chancellor for the Division of Academic and Student Life, Professor Sally Kift said it’s an outstanding result for JCU to receive the maximum number of awards.
"It highlights the passion, commitment and excellence of our dedicated teaching staff and confirms JCU's leadership position in the sector in learning and teaching.”
The Office for Learning and Teaching awards the citations to recognise excellence in teaching and outstanding contributions to student learning. Details of the citations and winners are below.
"These national Citations recognise and reward the impact that each of our dedicated teachers has had both in their discipline and on our students' experience of their learning. The Citations showcase our many new and exceptionally innovative approaches to learning and teaching,” Professor Kift said.
The Citations come just weeks after JCU again scored strong results in an authoritative ranking of global universities, as well as Australia’s Good Universities Guide.
Professor Kift has congratulated all of the Citation winners and thanked them for their outstanding contributions to students' learning.
“Our students deserve the best possible learning environments and these awards demonstrate that across our JCU campuses and disciplines - in this instance, ranging across science, teacher education, creative arts, multi-media journalism, maths and medicine - students are getting the best of the educational opportunities available in Australia."
Each of the winners receives $10,000 and will be presented with their Citations at a ceremony in Brisbane on September 29th.
Photos of the winners are attached.
