Congratulations to six staff who are the recipients of the 2010 Vice-Chancellor’s citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning.
Over the last year or two, surveys of ECU students have shown that teaching quality at ECU is competitive with the best universities in Australia.
To achieve this high recognition by our students requires wide-spread excellence and dedication by our staff performing their teaching duties.
It follows then that the recognition of our six colleagues who have been selected for special distinction from a large number of fellow staff is an honour of the highest order.
My congratulations to our six recipients and also to all of our staff who have contributed to the increasing recognition of teaching excellence at ECU.
