  • Carrick Awards for Australian University Teaching: Award for Teaching Excellence (Physical Science and Related Categories), 2006.
  • Australasian Association for Engineering Education Excellence in Engineering Education Award, Excellence in Teaching and Learning in Engineering Education Category, 2006.

"Holger has impressed his peers by the sustained scholarly approach displayed in his teaching; with the manner in which he has approached improvements to the student learning experience and the very positive student feedback he has received. He is a pioneer in the development of role-play simulations for engineering students, and it is for this approach that he has been recognised within the University of Adelaide, as well as nationally and internationally. Holger is an inspirational example of a professional engineer, one who has a command of the literature, generates original research and uses this scholarly basis to excite students. Holger is passionate about sharing ideas of sustainable management of natural resources and their interface with human infrastructure resources with his students."

  • Carrick Awards for Australian University Teaching: Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning for "sustained contributions to the development and promotion of online situational learning for the development of graduate attributes", 2006.
  • High Commendation, Best Presentation Award for "Meeting the challenges of engineering education via online roleplay simulations" by Holger R Maier, 17th Annual Conference of the Australasian Association for Engineering Education, Auckland, New Zealand, December 10-13, 2006.
  • High Commendation, Australasian Association for Engineering Education Excellence in Engineering Education Award, Excellence in a Curriculum Team Project in Engineering Education Category for the "Mekong eSim", 2005.

"The Mekong e-Sim was designed to facilitate students' awareness of the political, social, economic and scientific dimensions of decision-making in situations requiring the management of conflict associated with resource development. This is a unique teaching and learning activity …. [that] has had a significant impact on progressing the pedagogy associated with internet mediated role-play simulation by the dissemination of e-Sim knowledge to other disciplines and to the literature."

  • Stephen Cole the Elder Prize for Excellence in Teaching, University of Adelaide, 2002.

"It is evident that you have gained the esteem of your colleagues and students for being an innovative, reflective and enthusiastic teacher."

  • Commonwealth of Learning Excellence in Distance Education Award in Materials Development for the "Mekong eSim", 2002.

"The Mekong e-Sim programme reflects the growing interest in open and distance learning practices in the use of online learning technologies to support learner centeredness and flexible access to learning opportunities. Its educational design comprises appropriate use of role play simulation in an asynchronous online educational context including ample opportunity for students to critically reflect on ensuing discussions and group learning processes. Within this context there is clear identification of learning outcomes, assessment procedures and opportunities for feedback for learners. There is evidence in this programme of very astute usage of delivery technology with optimum opportunities for learners to communicate from a distance - asynchronously as well as synchronously."

  • Tall Poppy Science Award, 2002.
  • Pearson Education UniServe Science Teaching Award for the "Mekong eSim", 2001.

"Your submission was outstanding. Your project was very innovative, in the sense of being a new way of teaching using information technology. It was based on sound educational principles and backed by evaluation that was sensible, thorough and convincing."
