VC Education Excellence Awards

CBE teachers awarded for excellence in education

25 May 2017

Two academic staff from The Australian National University (ANU) College of Business and Economics (CBE) have been recognised for their contribution to educational excellence at the ANU Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Education.

Dr Andrew Bradly from CBE’s Research School of Management (RSM) was one of the winners in the Teaching Excellence category, while Carys Chan, also from RSM, was recognised in the Excellence in Tutoring or Demonstrating category.

The annual awards, introduced in 1991, recognise and encourage excellence in both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and research supervision across all colleges at the University. This year saw more than 20 educators recognised for their commitment to teaching at ANU, with 13 awards presented.

Of his award, Dr Bradly said, “I feel very privileged to receive this award particularly when I work among so many talented teachers at CBE. I’m so grateful for the support of my colleagues – over many years their advice and mentoring have been instrumental in developing my skills as an educator.

“The awards are an important signal that teaching matters, and that a great university has to excel in education as well as research.  Good teaching has always been very important to me and we owe it our students to do the best we can to inspire them to learn and grow.” 

"I am greatly humbled to receive this award, and highly encouraged to continue upskilling to make sure that my teaching is relevant and engaging for students,” said Chan.

“A special shout-out to Associate Prof Thomas Kalliath, CHELT, my students, and colleagues in RSM for providing me much needed guidance and support along my teaching journey. Through teaching, I have learnt so much more about myself and I thank you all for the opportunities." 

Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt said the awards are an opportunity to celebrate the exceptional teachers and educational innovators at ANU.

"It takes knowledge, time, care and imagination to meet the challenges that continue to face teaching within universities, and I am really pleased that so many of our staff have those qualities in abundance," he said.

"Teachers nurture the minds of the leaders and innovators of the future. The legacy of teaching excellence goes well beyond the present, as teachers inspire, lead, motivate, encourage and assist the students of today to reach their potential."

CBE’s Associate Dean (Education), Dr Bronwen Whiting, has congratulated the College’s recipients.

“We are thrilled to celebrate with our colleagues, and we are also excited for all the CBE students who benefit from the teaching skills and dedication of these staff, as well as all the other academics they will encounter during their study.”
