*AAP Innovation in Inclusive Curricula Prize - call for entries* The Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP) awards an annual prize of $500 for the development of innovative approaches to teaching philosophy. First awarded in 2014, the prize 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. Previous winners include Alexandre Lefebvre (University of Sydney), Ruth Boeker (University of Melbourne) and Michelle Sowey (The Philosophy Club). The prize will be awarded at the opening of the annual AAP conference in July. This Prize is sponsored by Taylor and Francis, publisher of the Australasian Journal of Philosophy and the Australasian Philosophical Review. *Criteria of evaluation* - Significant innovation in curriculum that successfully promotes equity and diversity within the discipline, particularly with respect to underrepresented or marginalised groups in the profession - Innovation in pedagogy that successfully promotes broader participation in the discipline - High quality in course design and delivery *Applications * The AAP invites entries/nominations for *individuals, or groups of individuals*, teaching undergraduate philosophy courses in Australasian Universities.
