The Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP) awards an annual prize of $1000 for the development of innovative approaches to teaching philosophy. First awarded in 2014, the prize is offered with a view to exploring ways in which undergraduate courses in philosophy can build the understanding and practise of an inclusive discipline, concerned to foster equal participation in the profession. The aims of the prize are to encourage professionals developing and improving their teaching portfolios to consider critically how philosophy is presented, and to be innovative in implementing practices of teaching that off-set well-known disparities of participation in the discipline, for instance along race and gender lines.

Criteria of evaluation
  • Innovation in course content that promotes the presentation of the discipline as accessible to a wide range of participants
  • Innovation in classroom teaching that encourages wide participation and can be expected to improve retention rates of under-represented groups in the profession
  • Evidence that the course design achieved some of its objectives

The prize is open to individuals, or groups of individuals, teaching undergraduate philosophy courses in Australasian Universities (in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore).

Entries/nominations for the prize close on 30th March 2015. More>>
