SLTA – Most Outstanding Supervisor Award

The SLTA Most Outstanding Supervisor is a University-wide award for staff supervising a dissertation (Bachelor’s thesis, Honours, Masters or PhD level) or research project. This award celebrates supervisors who provide exceptional guidance and support, help student progression and achievement and bring students into the community of scholars in a meaningful way.

Undertaking a research project is an intense experience. There are no short cuts on a research project – but there are plenty of rough patches, detours, and blockages. A supportive supervisor can really see you through. But more than that, a supportive supervisor is the one who introduces you to the academy and welcomes you into the community of scholars. This award is a shout out to them and everything they do. Supervision requires a special set of skills and it happens across course levels: HDR, Postgraduate Coursework, Honours, and Bachelors. We want to celebrate all the supervisors who have made a difference.

Nominations for the Student-Led teaching Awards (SLTA’s) including ‘Most Outstanding Supervisor’ are currently open for Semester 1 and close on July 22.
