Apereo Teaching and Learning Awards (ATLAS)
Are you using Sakai in innovative ways to advance teaching excellence? The Apereo Foundation is seeking submissions for the annual Apereo Teaching and Learning Awards (ATLAS) competition. The international award recognizes innovation and excellence in the use of digital technologies and Apereo tools, such as Sakai, to enhance teaching, academic collaboration, and student engagement and learning.
The innovative method, practice or strategy used may not be new in the world, but its implementation may be out of the ordinary in your field of practice or new to you. It is more than simply using new technologies; rather it is an approach to teaching and learning that results in a much-enhanced, even transformative, educational experience for students.
The award selection process opens January 15, 2019 and closes March 11, 2019. (deadline extended!) Please note the application must be downloaded by March 7, 2019.
Reach out to ITS-Teaching and Learning if you have questions about the application process or would like to brainstorm ideas. Contact us through help.unc.edu. We’d love to hear from you and help you get recognized!
