Hi all -- I am resending Janice's announcement from last week.  The March 1 date for preliminary submissions w/ feedback is approaching, and we're hoping to see some good OSP work in there!  As a reminder, the final deadline for submission is April 5.

Call for Entries: 2013 Teaching with Sakai Innovation Award
The Sakai Teaching and Learning community is seeking submissions for the annual Teaching With Sakai Innovation Award (TWSIA) competition. The award recognizes innovation and excellence in technology-supported teaching, academic collaboration, and student engagement. (See last year’s winners.)<http://openedpractices.org/twsia/2012/winners>
Award categories include:

•         Higher Education: Face-to-face

•         Higher Education: Fully Online or Hybrid Course

•         Primary and Secondary Education (K-12)

•         Project Sites & Other Uses of Sakai

•         Portfolios
We look forward to entries from those using the Sakai CLE and those pioneering the Sakai OAE (Open Academic Environment).
This year, the selection process will consist of two phases:
Phase 1: Preliminary abstract submission (recommended but not required)
Opening Date:  Feb 11, 2013      Closing Deadline: March 1, 2013
Each applicant should submit a brief description of the innovative teaching method, practice or strategy to be considered for the final award. Instructions and an example of a well-written abstract are included in the submission form<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1egNQvvJFxECWsr122G3Uegk9SAsJ3jkawDQR5X0K61Y/viewform>.

Applicants will receive feedback on abstracts by March 8, 2013.
Submitting an abstract is not required. However, the three questions on the abstract submission form will be required for all applicants as a part of the full application process. Those who submit a preliminary abstract may edit their responses prior to submitting the final application, in order to incorporate feedback from the judges.
The responses to these three items also will be used as part of the session description at the annual conference.
Phase 2:  Final submission (required of all applicants)
Opening Date: March 1, 2013     Closing Deadline: April 5, 2013
Each applicant will submit an in-depth description of the innovative teaching method, practice or strategy submitted and how it addresses the award criteria.
