Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Merit List

The DVC(A) Merit List for Teaching and Learning Excellence was established in 2018 by Professor Darrell Evans.

It is an annual list, comprising two announcements based on observations over the course of each semester.

The Merit List is determined by a number of factors including student outcomes in one or more courses, as well as consistent affirmations from students regarding the quality of the learning experience. In time, Program Convenors and ELFS Educator will also be recognised in this way, where there is evidence of exemplary outcomes in a program, including student retention and success and student and graduate satisfaction.
