Sakai Teaching and Learning Award

Just a quick reminder that the application deadline for the Teaching With Sakai Innovation Award is February 27, 2009  (midnight GMT, in case you’re planning a last minute submission). Winners will be awarded a trip to Boston, Massachusetts, to present at the 10th Sakai Conference and receive their award during the conference. Entries will also seed a collection of innovative practices in the repository, a community of practice for teaching and learning with open/community-source tools.

The second annual Teaching with Sakai Innovation Award builds on the energy generated at the 9th International Sakai Conference in Paris, France, where last year’s first and second place winners, Dr. Aileen Y Huang-Saad from the University of Michigan and Mr. Salim Nakhjavani from University of Cape Town, South Africa, excited attendees with their examples of how Sakai enhanced the educational experience of their students. This year’s award is being sponsored by IBM with additional support from rSmart and Wiley Higher Education, all Sakai Commercial Affiliates.
