Teaching awards

The Massey University Strategy 2018-2022 states that “We will provide a distinctive student-centred learning experience for all students...”.  Fundamental to achieving this goal is the quality and excellence of teaching which Massey University has established an enviable reputation for over the years. This point is evidenced by our outstanding success in winning National Tertiary Teaching Excellence Awards, including the Prime Minister’s supreme Award.

There are four (4) different teaching excellence awards that are offered centrally to recognise quality in teaching and learning practice.  In addition, some Colleges offer awards for quality in teaching and learning.  Although there is no requirement to have received a College teaching award in order to apply for a centrally-funded award, the College awards are generally regarded as a good stepping stone to the centrally-funded awards.

Each of the four centrally-funded awards come with a monetary value ranging from $1000, for the Teaching Support award, to $8,000 for the Vice-Chancellor's Teaching Excellence Awards.
