University of Adelaide Teaching Awards and Commendations
The University of Adelaide Teaching Awards and Commendations recognise the importance of learning and teaching at the University. They showcase the impact that teaching can have within the University but also beyond into the broader community. As staff we create this impact and this is an opportunity to celebrate the innovative and sustained ways that we engage our students to learn. Each year there are Award and Commendation categories for both academic and professional staff from all areas of the University.
- Commendations for the Enhancement and Innovation of Student Learning
The University of Commendations for the Enhancement and Innovation of Student Learning recognise the diverse range of activities, services and programs that contribute to student learning and engagement at the University of Adelaide, and the important role that staff from all areas of the University have in supporting us to achieve our strategic goals in learning and teaching.
Details of the 2019 Award Scheme including award categories and deadline for submission will be available shortly.

- Stephen Cole the Elder Awards for Excellence
The Stephen Cole the Elder Awards for Excellence are the University of Adelaide’s premier learning and teaching awards. They recognise the contributions made to student learning by both academic and professional staff, and reward the University’s highest achievers in teaching, support of teaching, and supervisory practices.
The Stephen Cole the Elder Awards were established through bequest made to the University of Adelaide by a descendant of Stephen Cole the Elder, pioneer South Australian colonist. The Stephen Cole the Elder Awards were first presented in 1991.
Up to four Stephen Cole the Elder Awards for Excellence will be offered in 2019, and recipients will be awarded $8000. All applications must be supported by a formal nomination. Both individuals and teams may be nominated in any category. The three categories of award are:
- Excellence in Teaching and Support for Learning
- Excellence in the Leadership, Support and Enhancement of Teaching Practice
- Excellence in HDR Supervisory Practice
It is anticipated that at least one award will be made in each of the three categories; however, the Selection Panel reserves the right to award in fewer in than three categories should the selection criteria not be met.
