The Australian Awards for University Teaching (AAUT) were established in 1997 by the Australian Government to celebrate and reward excellence in university teaching. The AAUT recognise quality teaching practice and outstanding contributions to student learning, demonstrating excellence in higher education learning and teaching. Recipients, with the support of their institutions, further contribute to systemic change in learning and teaching through the ongoing sharing and dissemination of knowledge.  

The AAUT accept applications for the following three award schemes:

  • Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning (COCSL)
  • Awards for Programs that Enhance Learning (APEL)
  • Awards for Teaching Excellence (ATE)
