Commencing in 2014, the Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP) offers an annual prize of $1500 for the development of innovative approaches to teaching philosophy.
This 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 is open to individuals, or groups of individuals, teaching undergraduate philosophy courses in Australasian Universities (in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore).
Entries/nominations for the prize close on 30th March 2014.
