*Call for Entries - AAP Innovation in Inclusive Curricula Prize*

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.

The prize will be awarded at the opening of the annual AAP conference in

This Prize is sponsored by Taylor and Francis, publisher of the
Australasian Journal of Philosophy and the Australasian Philosophical

*Criteria of evaluation*

·       Significant innovation in curriculum that successfully promotes
equity and diversity within the discipline, particularly with respect
to underrepresented

participation in the discipline.

·       Adoption of strategies for engaging with real-world issues and
justice in the classroom.

·       High quality in course design and delivery framed by the concern

diversity beyond the discipline and the classroom.
