Academic excellence awards
Outstanding Teaching (including Early Career Awards), Excellence in Research Supervision, Support of the Student Experience (open to both academic and general staff) and Systems that Achieve Collective Excellence in Learning and Teaching
Applications are now open for 2013 Sydney Medical School Awards for Outstanding Teaching, Excellence in Research Supervision, Support of the Student Experience and Systems that Achieve Collective Excellence in Learning and Teaching. The criteria for these awards are identical to those for the 2013 Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Learning and Teaching. Applications for the Sydney Medical School awards must be submitted in exactly the same format as for the Vice-Chancellor’s awards. Details of criteria and how to apply for each category of award may be found at www.itl.usyd.edu.au/awards/vcawards.htm
Members of School (including all title holders) are strongly encouraged to apply. The same application may be submitted for both the Sydney Medical School awards and the Vice-Chancellor's University awards (which close at 5pm on 22 March 2013). (Members of School who are unable to prepare a submission in time for consideration for a Vice-Chancellor’s award this year may nevertheless wish to make a submission for a Sydney Medical School award this year and consider updating their submission for consideration for a 2014 Vice-Chancellor's award.)
Subject to applications being of sufficient quality, the Dean may make up to four awards to individual members of staff and/or groups. Recommendations for awards will be made by a committee chaired by the Associate Dean (Learning and Teaching). Successful applicants will be awarded an appropriate certificate together with the sum of $5,000. The awards will be presented at the 3 December 2013 meeting of the Faculty of Medicine.
Applications for the Sydney Medical School Awards must be submitted to Ria Deamer by no later than 30 June 2013.
