The Deakin University Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Outstanding Contributions to Learning recognise and celebrate learning and teaching at Deakin University, and the elaboration and implementation of Deakin’s strategic agenda, LIVE the future.
The Professional Literacy Suite project team was recognised with the WJC Banks Award for Distinguished Contributions to Teaching and Learning.
Universities Australia – AAUT Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning 2020
Awarded for the development of program wide resources which support business students’ professional literacies.
“This collaboration was well planned from the start arising from a defined need for better student support. The evidence that it arose from scholarly practice and included ensuring the availability of the right skills set, and resources and support from senior management is inspiring in a time when funding is tight. That so many students have used the suite and that student success is evident & is a credit to the team.
In sum, the application is very strong and demonstrates that the team has formed a strong practice and program that others can learn from.”
