Business School Lecturer wins 2012 National Teaching Citation
19 Sep 2012
Senior Lecturer Giuseppe Carabetta, from the University of Sydney Business School's Discipline of Business Law, has been honoured with a prestigious Citation from the Federal Government, for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning.
The Federal Government Office for Learning and Teaching stated that Giuseppe received the award "For sustained excellence in experiential and collaborative learning experiences for Business Law students at both foundation and senior levels".
This is the second such award Giuseppe has received since taking up his role with the Business School, together with an ALTC Citation Award he received in 2008.
"I'm absolutely thrilled to receive this kind of formal recognition at the national level," Giuseppe said. "What makes this award so special is that it's for motivating student learning in both my first-year foundations unit and my new senior level Employment Regulation unit. It's also about actively encouraging the students to form linkages between the two units, and other Business School units."
"The award will no doubt encourage me to spread enthusiasm for my courses, and participate actively new initiatives aimed at improving the student learning experience, including some exciting new pilot programs which are already on foot" he said.
The Citation Awards were developed to recognise the work of academics and professional staff at Australian universities whose work in developing innovative programs, including new teaching models, contributes significantly to the improvement of student experiences and learning.
"The Business School is immensely proud of Giuseppe's continuing recognition as one of Australia's best educators," said Professor Geoffrey Garrett, Dean of the Business School. "Giuseppe's commitment to his students and to the development of innovative teaching methods are a testament to the quality of the educational experience we offer, and we congratulate him on receiving yet another award."
Giuseppe will receive his award at a ceremony in the Webster Theatre, The University of Sydney, at 3pm on 25 September, 2012.
