BEL teaching excellence reaches new heights

1 Nov 2016

BEL academics dominated their category last night at the 2016 UQ Awards for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.

Held annually during Teaching and Learning Week, the awards recognise exceptional UQ teachers.

Dr Frederique Bracoud from the UQ School of Economics and Dr Nicole Hartley from UQ Business School were both awarded Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning (COCSL).

Dr Sarah Kelly from UQ Business School also received a Commendation in the same category.

The COCSL category honours teachers who make a significant contribution to student learning in their area and who are well-regarded by their Faculty or the wider UQ community.

Dr Bracoud, who teaches finance to students from all disciplines, earned praise for her innovative mix of resources and learning activities, including original tutorials and training exercises with detailed model answers.

Dr Hartley was recognised for her unique marketing and advertising teaching practices, including the introduction of industry-based, student-led projects – the first of their kind to be offered at UQ Business School.

Dr Kelly was highly commended for her introduction and leadership of an international immersion program for MBA students.

Dr Bracoud and Dr Hartley will each receive a $4000 grant for professional development purposes, ensuring they continue to lead the way in their teaching fields.
