1 Nov 2017

The cream of The University of Queensland’s teaching crop has been fêted at the annual UQ Awards for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.

Staff and guests gathered at Customs House to honour inspirational teachers who have helped cement The University of Queensland’s ranking in the world’s top 50 universities.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Professor Joanne Wright said the event, which marks the start of Teaching and Learning Week, was an important recognition of the dedication of teachers and their extraordinary capacity to stimulate learning and provide direction to their students.

“Providing our students with the knowledge and skills to be enterprising graduates capable of building meaningful, agile careers is at the heart of UQ’s vision of knowledge leadership for a better world,” Professor Wright said.

The UQ Employability Framework developed by Dr Dino Willox, Ms Andrea Reid and Ms Anna Richards received a Commendation for Programs that Enhance Learning.
