RMIT University teacher, Paul Ryan, is the recipient of the inaugural KPMG Acclaimed Educator prize.
The prize is awarded to the most inspirational teacher in the first semester of study, as nominated by commencing students in the College of Business 2011.
Mr Ryan is a barrister and solicitor of the Supreme Court of Victoria and High Court of Australia and has practised law for 40 years.
He has been at RMIT for 12 years and teaches Torts, Contract, Land Contracts and Probate and Administration in the Business TAFE School.
“It is a humbling, but very gratifying, to be the first to receive this award,” Mr Ryan said.
“I compliment KPMG for supporting educational development by giving students the opportunity to have their say.”
Mr Ryan will be presented with the prize at the annual RMIT Business Prize Giving Ceremony on 10 May 2012.
The ceremony recognises the achievements of more than 120 current students and recent graduates from vocational education and training, undergraduate and postgraduate programs in the College of Business.
The KPMG prize is the first to recognise staff achievements.
Chris Leptos AM, Lead Partner – Higher Education, KPMG said: “KPMG believes the foundation for a rich and rewarding campus experience is exceptional teaching.
“This prize will help find and acknowledge those acclaimed educators, and will hopefully stimulate conversations about the transformative power of tertiary education.”
More than 50 sponsors support the RMIT University Business Prize Giving Ceremony - an indication of the strong support that the College of Business receives from industry and the community.
