Professor Mitchell, who is an assistant professor of architecture at the AUS School of Architecture and Design (SA&D), earned an honourable mention for `Lessons from Practice', a course he taught at SA&D.

The Education Honour Awards programme, now in its 15th year, recognises collegiate faculty achievements and contributions to education and the discipline of architecture. They are given for excellence in course development and architectural teaching. The 2004 recipients were presented with their award and honoured for their achievement at the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture Annual Meeting held in Florida recently.

The purpose of the awards programme is to discover and recognise the achievement of individuals who serve the profession as outstanding teachers and to increase professional and public awareness of models of educational excellence in classroom, studio, community-based service learning or laboratory work.

The awards jury, which was a cross-section of architecture educators, practitioners and a student representative, looked for evidence of exceptional and innovative courses that dealt with broad issues.
