The deadline for entries for the 2011 award is Friday, February 7th, 2011 at 11:59 p.m., your local time.

Profile: (required)

Select your course/site from the drop-down list. If your course/site is not yet in the list, first create a new course/site profile. When you return to the application, you will then be able to select your course or site from the list. (Drop-down of course/site profiles)


Category: (required)

Pick only one category in which to enter your course/subject/site.. Please note: The preliminary judging committee reserves the right to request that you change your category if the committee believes an alternate category might be a better fit. [Radio buttons]

A. Higher Education: Face-to-Face

This category covers undergraduate and graduate level courses in which a class generally meets face-to-face (physically) weekly during a semester and uses technology to supplement classroom-based teaching and learning. Higher education refers to university-level undergraduate education (also referred to as "college" in North America), vocational education (referred to as "tertiary" in Australia and New Zealand), and graduate education.

B. Higher Education: Distance Education or Hybrid Course

This category covers any undergraduate and graduate level course where the content and activities are delivered online. This could apply to a completely online environment. It would also apply to a course with an online component used in conjunction with reduced weekly face-to-face time, (referred to as hybrid/blended, which is defined, by some US institutions as 50% or more of the course time delivered at a distance). Distance education courses (online), including ones with highly irregular face-to-face meetings and proctored (also referred to as "invigilated") exams, are also included in this category. Higher education refers to university-level undergraduate education (also referred to as "college" in North America), vocational education (referred to as "tertiary" in Australia and New Zealand), and graduate education.

C. Primary & Secondary Education (K-12)

Any course, face-to-face, hybrid, or online, taught to an audience below the undergraduate (college) level, is included in this category. In North America, it is referred to as K-12 (Kindergarten to 12th grade). Elsewhere in the world, it is also referred to as elementary, early, primary, middle, and secondary education, and usually covers education provided to students under the age of 18 years old.

D. Non-Traditional/Non-Course Sites

Any other use of Sakai that does not fit the three previous categories, including project sites, portfolio initiatives, professional training and development, etc.

Teaching Innovation

The intent of the Teaching With Sakai Innovation Award (TWSIA) is to recognize excellence in teaching and learning.

The TWSIA committee defines an innovative educational experience as one that, by design, engages and challenges students, resulting in greater student interest, a deeper level of understanding and/or a lasting change in the students' perception of an issue or topic.

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.

Note that eligibility for the TWSIA requires use of the Sakai in some form and other items as outlined in the TWSIA rubric.
