If you are looking for past award winners, use the following links to view specific winners in each category Innovation Award, Life Members, ASCILITE Fellows. As of 2018, the ASCILITE Fellow Award has been discontinued.
The ASCILITE Innovation Award was introduced in 2011 as the “Innovation & Excellence” award. It celebrates work undertaken by an individual or team of people in support of the exemplary and research informed use of technologies for teaching and learning in tertiary education. Innovation is defined as a new idea, device or process. It is something original that “breaks into” teaching and learning in the tertiary sector. For further information, refer to the Innovation Award Criteria and Nomination form below.
Life Member Award
An ASCILITE Life Member Award is a prestigious award that recognises the significant service and/or sustained contribution of a member to the Society. Life Member Awards are the highest recognition of achievement made by ASCILITE. This award is made only when an appropriate candidate meets the criteria. This means that the award may not be presented every year. Life members do not pay membership fees. For further information, refer to the Life Member Award Criteria and Nomination form below.
Student Bursary Award
Up to three Student Bursaries in the amount of $1,000 each are available to full-time PhD/EdD or equivalent students. Winners receive a $1,000 bursary to attend the ASCILITE conference and a one year student membership in ASCILITE along with the remaining funds to be put towards accommodation or travel assistance to attend the conference. Winners are included in the ASCILITE conference awards ceremony and their submissions are available on the ASCILITE website.
