The Faculty of Pharmacy'sDr Rebekah Moles was one of nine colleagues from five different faculties who received national recognition for their outstanding teaching.

The federal government's Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) announces Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning each year to recognise quality teaching practice and contributions towards student learning.

Dr Moles was awarded for her creative approach to teaching that requires her students to search for answers and stimulates their curiosity.

She was also instrumental in January's Sydney Pharmacy Indigenous Camp initiative, a program to encourage more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to pursue careers in pharmacy.

The University received seven other citations for 2013, including a joint citation for two staff, the maximum number the OLT awards to any one institution.

"Great teachers inspire and motivate our students. I congratulate all the award recipients for the enthusiasm and dedication they have shown to their students," said University of Sydney Vice-Chancellor and Principal Dr Michael Spence.

"Rebekah's commitment to supporting the continuous improvement of learning and teaching is very evident and widely recognised within the Faculty," said Dean of the Faculty of Pharmacy Professor Iqbal Ramzan.

"I congratulate her for this well-deserved national honour," he said.
