What are Group Learning and Teaching Citations?
Group Learning and Teaching Citations (GLTC) recognise and reward teachers, teaching teams, professional staff and programs for their contributions to student learning. They are awarded on the basis of a competitive application process undertaken within each Academic Group (hence the term “Group Learning and Teaching Citation") and require a written application addressing assessment criteria, supported by evidence. In a GLTC application you make a claim or claims for the effectiveness of your teaching overall or for an innovation or intervention in your courses and programs, supported by relevant data/evidence.
There are 20 Group Learning and Teaching citations that are awarded annually. The maximum number of citations to be awarded by each Group (based on EFTSL) is five Citations. The citations may be awarded to individual teachers, teaching teams and programs.
The Group Learning and Teaching Citations are managed by the Office of the Dean (Learning and Teaching) in each Academic Group. The Office of the Dean (Learning and Teaching) manages processes for mentoring applicants and selection within their Academic Group.
GLTC recipients are presented with a Certificate at the annual Vice Chancellor’s Teaching Excellence Awards.
