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.

Previous winners include Ruth Boeker (University of Melbourne) and Michelle
Sowey (The Philosophy Club)

Entries/nominations for the prize close on *28 February 2017*. For further
