I am pleased to announce that a number of staff have been recognised for their outstanding achievements in teaching and learning through the Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Excellence in Teaching; Awards for Programs that Enhance Learning; and Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning.
Last year ECU once again received a five star rating from our students for their experience while studying with us, as well as for the quality of our teaching. Therefore it should come as no surprise that we are able to acknowledge excellence from so many ECU teaching staff today.
I congratulate all award recipients and also all of our staff who have contributed to the increasing recognition of teaching excellence at ECU.
