Curtin has a tradition of recognising its excellent teachers and programs that support student learning and this is reflected in our success at national level in the Awards for Australian University Teaching (AAUT) coordinated by the Australian Government Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT). In the past four years, Curtin has won nine Awards for Teaching Excellence; three awards for Programs that Enhance Learning; and twenty-five Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning.

The Curtin Awards for Excellence and Innovation in Teaching (EIT) are awarded annually and aim to provide recognition and reward for outstanding performances, by both individuals and teams, in teaching and in enhancing student learning. The Award programs available for nomination are:

Eligibility

Each of the EIT Awards programs has differing requirements and selection criteria. Applicants should refer to the appropriate award program guidelines for selection criteria, selection process and timelines.

The winners of the Curtin Awards for Excellence and Innovation are announced in October and the winners will receive their awards at a ceremony later in the year.

Nomination is by self-nomination. All members of Curtin academic staff whether full-time or part-time, teaching in undergraduate or postgraduate programs, on-shore or off-shore, are eligible to nominate, provided they have taught at Curtin for at least two years. Citations are also open to non-academic staff and university associates who make a contribution to student learning. Refer to each category of awards for more detailed eligibility guidelines.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for a Faculty teaching award before considering an EIT Award. The Faculty awards generally mirror the EIT Awards guidelines and criteria and can be viewed as a formative process in the development of an EIT Award.
