Do you have a winning teaching tip?
UNSW educators are invited to share their teaching practices in the form of a two-minute video as part of the UNSW Exemplary Teaching Practice (ETP) Awards.
Sponsored by the Scientia Education Academy (SEA), these unique awards are very different to other teaching awards available to our staff. They help to build teaching effectiveness across UNSW, as well as recognise our incredible educators for their outstanding approaches to education and improving the student experience.
The ETP Awards aim to unearth and share widely applicable, useful teaching practices across our campuses by showcasing brief, helpful videos about tackling common teaching challenges. Award winners, finalists and honourable mentions are showcased in the Teaching News You Can Use (TNYCU) repository.
How to enter the Exemplary Teaching Practice Awards
Educators and all colleagues who teach at UNSW can enter by submitting a video that addresses one of eight teaching challenges on the following topics:
Assessment and feedback
Building student communities
Challenging and supporting students’ active learning
Leveraging student diversity
Linking learning to context
Supporting student well-being
Using AI in teaching and assessment.
Winning entries will receive one of eight $1,000 awards (one for each teaching category), as well as peer-reviewed recognition of educational impact to cite in applications for a job, tenure, promotion or other teaching awards.
To submit or for more information, including tips on creating your video and the award criteria, visit the Exemplary Teaching Awards SharePoint site.
Submissions close 5pm, Monday 30 October.
