Award writing modules

Writing Applications for Group Learning and Teaching Citations – Online modules

These writing modules aim to support eligible staff to develop Group Learning and Teaching Citation applications that address the higher order criteria against which applications are assessed and meet the eligibility and compliance requirements of the Griffith Awards and Citations for Excellence in Teaching Guidelines. The two key goals are for staff to

  • document and demonstrate excellence in teaching and learning
  • develop a compliant application.

The modules comprise:

  • Planning your application
  • Key application requirements
  • The Written Statement – Choosing assessment criteria
  • The Written Statement – Structure and style
  • Reviewing your application and final submission

The Writing Applications for Griffith Awards for Excellence in Teaching – Online modules will be published in May.


Additional support

Deans (Learning and Teaching) will provide an appropriate mentor on request for applicants from their Academic Group and peers who will be able to provide feedback on a final draft of an application. See the list of contacts on this page.

Learning Futures staff will provide initial advice on eligibility criteria on request, prior to application submission. Email awards-sec@griffith.edu.au or contact the Manager (Awards, Grants and Fellowships).
