Dr Basia Diug makes history as first SPHPM recipient of the Monash Teaching Accelerator Award

The Monash Education Academy last week announced the winners of the Monash Teaching Accelerator Award, with Senior Lecturer Dr Basia Diug the first SPHPM award recipient since the Academy first launched the awards in 2014.

Designed specifically to reward and recognise Monash staff, the Monash Teacher Accelerator program aims to accelerate the career development of high performing academic staff and provide motivation for educational leadership and innovation.

Dr Basia Diug joins a small and select number of staff awarded the Monash Teacher Accelerator Awards of which the financial reward is split in two: a personal reward of $5,000 for Level B and $10,000 for level C recipients; and the remainder of the funding ($35,000 for Level B and $45,000 for Level C) is for activities to support the awardee’s professional development.

This year staff from the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences and the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences took out all three awards, with Dr Quentin Fogg and Dr Elizabeth Yuriev also named award-winners.

“We are delighted to present our deserving winners with the Teacher Accelerator awards for 2016. The Academy is here to support educators at Monash by providing staff with programs like this that provide them with opportunities to enhance their practice and further their careers,” said Monash Education Academy Executive Chair, Tina Overton.

Dr Basia Diug also recently secured funding from the Better Teaching, Better Learning Small Grants scheme awarded by the Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor Learning and Teaching.

Dr Basia Diug, who received the Vice Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence last year continues to make significant contributions to teaching and learning at SPHPM through curriculum design, innovation and program initiation. Her latest project involves creating an interactive e-book resource for her students.
