2020 Australian Awards for University Teaching

Each year, the Australian Government, Department of Education and Training, honours a select number of university academics from across the country with National Citations.

Citations are for innovators who have made outstanding contributions to student learning. National citation recipients identify problems for their students, put solutions in place and ensure that these innovations are having impact leading to success for students.
