UQ Business School Associate Professor Clive Warren was among several University of Queensland teachers who have been recognised in the 2015 Australian Awards for University Teaching.

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Professor Joanne Wright, said UQ highly values student success and puts enormous effort into ensuring that its graduates were recognised globally as ‘must have’ employees.

“Supporting our students to learn and see the world differently is critical to this endeavour,” Professor Wright said.

“We are delighted that several of our staff have been recognised for excellent teaching in the 2015 Citations for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning section of the Australian Awards for University Teaching.”

Associate Professor Clive Warren was recognised in a four-person project team, AIM High, for “an innovative, institution-wide approach to improving student understanding of academic integrity and plagiarism through a student-centred online interactive tutorial and program.”

Along with Associate Professor Clive Warren, The AIM High team comprises of Associate Professor Ann Peterson and Dr David Neil from the School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Management, and Dominic McGrath from the Institute for Teaching and Learning Innovation.

Associate Professor Warren said the team are thrilled to receive this national recognition for the teaching tool. 

“The tutorial has proved to be very valuable to students who often have limited understanding of intellectual property rights and think if it is on the web or in the public domain then they can freely cut and paste into academic assignments.  After taking this simple tutorial students appreciate good academic writing and how to correctly cite others work,” he said.
