Call for Entries for the 2014 Teaching with Sakai Innovation Award

The Sakai Teaching and Learning community is seeking entries 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. Since the first call for submissions in 2008, educators from institutions around the world have submitted their entries in the annual competition. Again this year, we look forward to entries from those using the Sakai CLE (Collaborative Learning Environment) and the Apereo OAE (Open Academic Environment). 

Award categories include: “Higher Education: Face-to-Face,” “Higher Education: Fully Online or Hybrid Course,” “Primary and Secondary Education (K-12),”  “Projects & Other Uses” and “Portfolios”

Entries are now being accepted on the Apereo Foundation site at: http://www.apereo.org/twsia  which provides information for applicants on how to enter the competition, including a description of the award categories, the rubrics, the definition of innovation that is used to judge entries, and downloadable entry forms.

The closing date for entries is April 4, 2014. Winners will be notified in early May 2014 and receive recognition at the Open Apereo Conference, June 1-4, 2014 in Miami, Florida, and in a wide variety of media. A limited amount of funding will be available to support a portion of each winner's travel to the conference.

We thank our sponsor Asahi Net International (ANI) for their continuing support of the Teaching With Sakai Innovation Award.
