The Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP) awards an annual prize of $500 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

  • Significant innovation in curriculum that successfully promotes equity and diversity within the discipline, particularly with respect to underrepresented or marginalised groups in the profession
  • Innovation in pedagogy that successfully promotes broader participation in the discipline
  • High quality in course design and delivery

The prize is open to individuals, or groups of individuals, teaching undergraduate philosophy courses in Australasian Universities.

Entries/nominations for the prize close on 29 February 2016. More>>
