Some reflections on winning an ALTC Teaching Excellence Award

By Deborah J. Henderson


Since 1996, quality teaching has been recognised in the Australian Awards for University Teaching (AAUT), administered first by the Australian government Department of Education, and then from 2000, by the Australian Universities Teaching Committee (AUTC). In 2005, the awards were overseen by the government funded Carrick Institute for Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and known as the Carrick Awards for Australian University Teaching. The newly elected Rudd government reconfigured the process and established the Australian Learning and Teaching Council (ALTC) in 2008 to administer the awards under the AAUT nomenclature. In this edition of Re-Union, Deborah Henderson reflects on receiving an a 2010 ALTC Teaching Excellence Award in the category of Social Sciences (including Education)
