The Teaching With Sakai Innovation Award (TWSIA) committee is seeking distinguished individuals to serve as judges for the fourth annual competition for this international award. We are looking for judges who have a passion for teaching, and whose life-long work includes championing effective learning opportunities first, and technology second but who are not currently involved in the Sakai community.
The purpose of the award is:
- To drive innovation on teaching and learning within the Sakai community
- To share best practices, understandings and experiences among faculty members and between faculty and other Sakai community members
- To communicate the goals and issues of the teaching and learning community to contributors in Sakai including developers, user interface, system administrators, documentation, support, and quality assessment
Judges will select the finalists using the award evaluation rubric and through interviews with the finalists, which are conducted through web-conferencing technology during the Spring 2011 semester. If you know anyone who might be interested or whom you would like to nominate, we would be delighted to hear from you to discuss this further and answer any questions.
Past entries, finalists and the rubric can be found at http://openedpractices.org/twsia.
Please email any nominations or questions to Sue Roig (Susan.Roig@cgu.edu) no later than Friday September 24, 2010.
