2012 Teaching with Sakai Innovation Award

Call for Entries for the 2012 Teaching with Sakai Innovation Award

The Sakai Teaching and Learning community is seeking entries for the  
5th 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.

New this year is the creation of a separate category for portfolio  
sites, which will be judged by updated criteria. The other award  
categories are: "Higher Education: Face-to-face," "Higher Education:  
Fully Online or Hybrid Course," "Primary and Secondary Education  
(K-12)," and "Project Sites & Other Uses of Sakai." We look forward to  
entries from those using the Sakai CLE and also those pioneering the  
Sakai OAE (Open Academic Environment).

Entries are now being accepted on the Open Ed Practices, which  
provides information for applicants on how to enter the competition,  
including a description of the award categories, and the rubrics and  
definition of innovation used to judge entries.

The closing date for entries is March 2, 2012. Winners will be  
notified May 1, 2012 and may have their expenses paid to Atlanta,  
Georgia to present their winning entries at the Jasig/Sakai  
Conference, June 10-15, 2012.

To apply for the award, and for more information, please go to
