Take a look at some of the photos from the evening and join us in congratulating all our award and citation winners.
This week we celebrated the annual Vice-Chancellor’s Learning and Teaching Awards, a night to recognise the many talented UTS staff who are innovating their learning experience for students. 42 staff from across the learning and teaching community were recognised on the night. The night was also a chance of us to get together to share ideas and meet colleagues across all faculties.

See the photos from the night, including all award and citation recipients.

The next round of Vice-Chancellor’s Learning and Teaching Awards is set to open in September this year. Stay informed by signing up to Futures e-news.
