The recognition of excellence in teaching and learning is a partnership between the Council on Higher Education (CHE) and the Higher Education Learning and Teaching Association of Southern Africa (HELTASA).

The aims of the awards are:

• to show support at a national level for excellence in teaching and
learning in higher education;
• to generate a cadre of academics who are identifiable and able to
provide inspiration and leadership in teaching in their disciplines,
institutions and regions; and
• to generate debate and public awareness about what constitutes
teaching excellence in higher education.


Academics (lecturers and academic development practitioners) at all South African public higher education institutions are eligible for this award.
