Based on student surveys, OUA issued certificates to 16 lecturers across all of the providers of OUA courses in Australia.

The UniSA recipients are Phil Johnson, Nicky Kassoudakis, Kent Wilson and Peter Lennox (Commerce); Dr Chris Klinger (International Studies); and Dr Jackie O’Flaherty (Pharmacy and Medical Sciences).

Phil Johnson, who was recognised as one of the three top OUA lecturers nationally, also received a cheque for $500.

Professor Neil Otway, Director of the Centre for Regional Engagement, which provides administrative support for OUA students, said the certificates were "a credit to the commitment and expertise of all UniSA lecturers involved in the delivery of OUA courses".

Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academic, Professor Peter Lee presented certificates to the recipients at a ceremony and luncheon held in the Hawke Building in late March, also attended by Pro Vice Chancellor, Strategy and Planning, Professor Hilary Winchester.
