    essence of their application?

  • Where to now?

    • Feedback from colleagues

    • Finding a Professional Friend

    • TDU, ALTC Coordinator


Preparing your citation application

  • Do not attempt to address all criteria. Select one or two areas of strength. No advantage to select more

  • The examples under the criteria are indicative

  • The written statement should contain

    • Proposed citation (max 25 words)

    • Summary of particular contribution & specific context

    • Statement addressing chosen selection criterion/ia

    • Statement of evidence for ways your contribution has:

      • influenced student learning/ engagement/ overall experience

      • been sustained over time

      • been recognised by colleagues, UWS &/or broader community

  • Provide examples, evidence & impact

  • Provide evidence from a variety of sources

  • Demonstrate breadth and depth

  • Write in your own voice

  • Less is more – if it cannot be said in 4 A4 pages for Statement (minimum 11 point, Arial Narrow recommended, 2cm margins) then EDIT

  • Choose 2 referees carefully

  • You cannot start writing too soon. Start now. Seek feedback
