Nominations deadline extended for Dr. Alan Wright Award for Exemplary Online and Technology-Enhanced Teaching

The Office of Open Learning has extended the deadline for submissions for the Dr. Alan Wright Award for Exemplary Online and Technology-Enhanced Teaching to Friday, June 16.

Sponsored by the Office of Open Learning, the award is new in 2017 and recognizes exceptional educators who have demonstrated a commitment to innovation, enhancement and scholarly approaches to teaching in online, hybrid, and open learning.

The award is open to all instructors teaching online, hybrid, open, and technology-enabled courses at the University of Windsor. Winners will receive a $500 cash prize, plus $500 to help them disseminate the good practice for which they are being recognized.

“Adopting new technologies and ways of teaching takes commitment and courage, and we really wanted to find a way to recognize our exemplary teachers who have taken this leap,” says Nick Baker, director of the Office of Open Learning.

Baker says the award also aims to help people who are innovating in their teaching to share that practice with others.

Winners will be announced and applauded at the annual Celebration of Teaching Excellence.

Details of eligibility, criteria and the nomination process are available on the award website. For more information, contact Baker at nbaker@uwindsor.ca or 519-253-3000, ext. 4925.
