The OLT Teaching Excellence and Program Awards are highly prestigious and provide recognition of significant achievements in teaching at a national level.

The University of Sydney has had a number of winners in recent years. In 2015, Dr Elizabeth New received an Early Career Teaching Excellence Award and the Peer Assisted Learning Programme from the Central Medical School, Dr Annette Burgess, Associate Professor Kirsten Black, Associate Professor Renata Chapman, Professor Craig Mellis and Associate Professor Chris Roberts, received an Award in the category Programs that Enhance Learning.

If you have already received acknowledgment for the quality of your teaching or the quality of program designed to enhance student learning from your Faculty, you should consider an application to the OLT awards. Two workshops will be held in early May to outline what’s required to apply for nomination by the University. Both workshops will also help you to consider what makes an application nationally competitive.
