UQ President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Høj said the annual teaching awards acknowledged dedicated and inspirational teachers and teaching programs

"These annual awards are bestowed on the University's most outstanding teachers, who through their excellence in teaching and devotion to the student experience will affect the professional lives of students long after graduation," Professor Høj said.

“UQ attracts the best teachers who have a desire to share their expertise with our increasingly discerning students and to help create new knowledge about our world and how to solve its mysteries and challenges.

"The staff who have been honoured with teaching awards are outstanding mentors who add meaning and value to what they teach and help produce well rounded graduates that have the UQ Advantage."
