2022 Award Winner: University of Queensland

CAPHIA Award for Teaching Excellence (Team)

The CAPHIA Teaching Excellence Award recognises and rewards the contribution of CAPHIA members to quality teaching and learning and inspiring student learning in public health.

The Teaching Excellence Award was presented to the University of Queensland Bachelor of Health Sciences’ first-year Course Coordinator team, who led the co/redesign of a first year experience using a cross-disciplinary approach across the School of Public Health and the School of Biomedical Sciences. Student-Staff Partnership enabled the development of student-centred approaches to learning, and First Nations academics and in-residence elder partners also co-led the reimagining of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander course.
