Australian Awards for University Teaching

Award for Programs that Enhance Learning

In 2013, Associate Professor Peter Hudson, Dr Suzanne Hudson, Dr Mallihai Tambyah and Justine Hudson from the Faculty of Education received an Award for Programs that Enhance Learning, for their work on the Teacher Education Done Differently (TEDD) program.

The TEDD program is founded on sustained local/regional educational partnerships to advance pre-service teacher education in a low socioeconomic regional campus of QUT. Further, through its national partnerships, TEDD's reach and benefits have been extended through embedding in-school development of mentors for pre-service teachers.
