Flinders University has a proud history of rewarding teaching innovation and excellence.
The teaching award framework enables the University to recognise and reward teaching excellence across the institution, as well as identify and support staff to make competitive submissions for national awards. The trajectory of success commences with College Teaching Awards before progressing to Institutional Teaching Awards and on to National Teaching Awards.
