Bond University Recognised for Teaching Excellence

Bond University’s dedication to quality teaching and learning practices has been recognised by the prestigious Carrick Institute, with two individuals and one team of Bond academics being awarded citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning.

The Carrick Citations, each valued at $10,000, are part of the Australian Government’s expanded programme of national awards designed to recognise and reward teaching excellence in the higher education sector.

Education Minister, The Honourable Julie Bishop MP said; “These Citations acknowledge and celebrate the vital contribution made by individuals and teams to the quality of student learning, from undergraduate teaching to research supervision.”

“They recognise a range of academic and professional support staff who are acknowledged by their colleagues as making an enormous difference to the learning experiences of their students.

“I congratulate the winners on their outstanding contribution to student learning.”

Vice-Chancellor of Bond University Professor Robert Stable said the receipt of three citations was testament to the university’s commitment to innovation and excellence in teaching practice and research supervision.

“These citations mark another outstanding achievement for the university and our world-class academic staff.

“At Bond, we pride ourselves on delivering a unique and personalised experience for our students, and to have our contribution recognised not once, but three times, in a highly competitive field is a fantastic result.

“I congratulate our award winners and wish them all the best for their nominations in the Australian University Teaching Awards, to be held later in the year.”

Dr Amy Kenworthy-U'Ren - For significant contribution to management education through scholarly activities, with a particular emphasis on increasing theoretical and practical integration of service learning pedagogy
