Excellence and innovation in teaching and learning
The University of Auckland is committed to providing all undergraduate and research students with teaching and supervision of the highest quality, and to ensuring excellence in student learning experiences and outcomes.
Learning Enhancement Grants (LEGs) are for projects that lie outside the normal scope of departmental budgets. A main intention of LEGs is to stimulate innovations in teaching and course delivery that might serve as useful models within the University.
Awards for teaching excellence are available at both the University and national level.
Winners of the University of Auckland Teaching Excellence Awards may be nominated by the University to apply for a National Tertiary Teaching Excellence Award.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice (PGCertAcadPrac) provides a structured research-based educational environment in which University of Auckland academic staff can explore theories of tertiary teaching and academic citizenship and apply those theories to their own teaching.
