CDU features at Carrick Awards 


Four Charles Darwin University lecturers have been recognised in the 2007 Carrick Awards for their outstanding contribution to the quality of student learning.

The Carrick Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning, in which CDU featured prominently, recognise and reward the diverse contributions that individuals and teams make to the quality of student learning.

Common Unit Coordinator, Nicola Rolls, Senior lecturer, Resource Management, Greg Williams and Discipline Leader Civil Engineering, Robert Wolff, were recognised for enhancing the quality and success of CDU students' learning journey through best practice in curricula, teaching, assessment, support and research.

Lecturer, Mechanical Engineering, Mark Thiele, was also recognised for aligning the criteria of a national competition to the assessment of ENG235 Manufacturing, to provide students with a collaborative, authentic and contextualised learning experience.

All category winners will receive $10,000 in recognition of their contribution to student learning.

The Carrick Citations are granted to people who have made a significant contribution to the quality of student learning in a specific area of responsibility over a sustained period, whether they are academic staff, general staff, sessional staff or institutional associates.

People who are awarded Carrick Citations are widely recognised for their achievements within the nominating institution and have received strong institutional endorsement.
