Each year Griffith conducts awards schemes at both the University level and within each Academic Group to recognise and reward outstanding achievements by teachers, teaching teams and program teams. The recipients for the 2020 round for Group Learning and Teaching Citations were recently announced by Professor Debra Henly (Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor). We would like to congratulate all staff who were successful in this round.

Citation recipients will be acknowledged at the Vice Chancellor’s Teaching Excellence Awards in March 2021.
