The Griffith Learning and Teaching Academy (GLTA) provides strategic oversight of processes to recognise the achievements and contributions of exemplary Griffith educators including Higher Education Academy Fellowships, institutional learning and teaching awards, and support for national award applicants. The range of recognition and reward opportunities on offer at Griffith are detailed on the Recognising Teaching Excellence page.

To assist staff with navigating learning and teaching recognition, reward and professional learning opportunities available, the Academy Steering Committee and Learning Futures have developed the Learning and Teaching Reward & Recognition Opportunities by Career Stages resource. This document presents reward and recognition opportunities organised by career stages and can be used by staff and supervisors to plan reward and recognition opportunities and pathways.

As the opportunities vary in eligibility and complexity, staff may decide to follow a particular pathway, building on their experience and achievements as they progress through their career.

The document presents reward and recognition opportunities in relation to the following career stages:

The resource is now available to all staff via the Recognising Teaching Excellence website.
