About the Awards

The CAUDIT Awards recognise, celebrate and promote the outstanding achievements and innovation of staff working in IT in CAUDIT member organisations, and the application of digital capabilities which positively transform the experience of students, academics and professional staff.

There are five categories in the CAUDIT awards, and individual and group submissions are invited for four of the five categories. The fifth category – the Emerging Leader category – is an individual only category, open to recent graduates of the CAUDIT Leaders Institute (CLI) who can demonstrate that they have taken their experience of the CLI and built upon what they have learnt.  

Applications for the CAUDIT Awards close 14 February 2020.

The five categories are:

  • Improving Student Success
  • Innovation in Teaching and Learning
  • Excellence in Research Support
  • Operational Excellence
  • Emerging Leader

More information on each award can be found on the Award Categories page.

The winner/s of each category will be able to choose from a range of developmental opportunities such as participation in a relevant conference e.g. THETA, Gartner Symposium, EDUCAUSE or other, study tour or funding for participation in a professional development programme to the value of AUD$4,500.

Finalists will be recognised and winners announced at the 2020 CAUDIT Awards which will be held across 4 days with the CAUDIT Spring Members Meeting, Tuesday 29th September - Friday 02 October 2020.
