Please share your story with us and with other faculty around the world by applying for the Teaching with Sakai Innovation Award.

If you are the winner, you will be awarded a trip to Paris to participate in the 9th Sakai Conference, July 1 - 3. (https://sakai.educonference.com/paris/index.php). There you will be recognized at an award ceremony and invited to showcase your course. If you are the winner and unable to travel to Paris, a modest honorarium will be awarded and we will work with you to provide an electronic presence at the conference. Check out our self-scoring rubric today to see how your course stacks up.
