Business School Awards for Excellence in Tutoring
The purpose of the Business School Awards for Excellence in Tutoring is to recognise, promote, reward and share excellence in facilitating student learning by tutors within the School. In keeping with that purpose, the prize money is to be used on learning and teaching related resources or learning and teaching professional development.
Two $1,000 awards are made annually. In addition to this award, there is also the Dean's Citation for Tutoring.
Nominations of tutors for excellence awards are welcome at any time of the year.
To nominate your tutor consider if you feel they've especially:
- Helped you to think critically on your own
- Presented material imaginatively and enthusiastically
- Shown how recent, relevant events relate
- Been interested in helping you learn
- Provided helpful advice and useful feedback
- Been innovative
- Or supported your learning in any other way that you really appreciate
Then send their name, unit code and your reasons for nomination to Susan Ellicot-Darke.
A call for nominations from students is made four times a year, at the end of each semester and during Summer and Winter schools. A call for nominations from academics and staff is made once a year in October.
The closing date for applications for Teaching and Tutoring Awards is the first Friday in February. Applications for 2012 awards close February 1, 2013.
Recipients' applications are included on the Awards Recipients page.
