Awarding teachers who inspire and engage – as voted for by students

The UNSW Students’ Choice Teaching Award is awarded to teachers that empower and embolden their students.

The UNSW Students' Choice Teaching Award is an award that recognises UNSW staff for their contributions to their students' learning. As nominated and judged by the students themselves, the annual award highlights teachers who have made a real difference to their learning experience by inspiring, elevating, challenging, and most of all, by caring. Students are invited to nominate staff who go above and beyond; who inspire and challenge them and support their development as people and professionals.

Running for its second year, the Students' Choice Teaching Award was awarded to five outstanding teachers, presented by Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic Quality, Professor Merlin Crossley, at the second annual UNSW Education Festival.
