2012 Committee

Subject: Call for award committee members

The Sakai Teaching and Learning Group is forming the 2012 Award Committee to oversee this year's Teaching with Sakai Innovation Award. Since the inception of the award in 2008 we've had a strong applicant pool each year and selected outstanding finalists. You can view last year's three award winners--Niem Huynh, Shirley Bennett, and Kelly Pickering -- at the OpenEd Practices site, as well as the winners of each year's competition.

We hope to continue the success of this award for 2012 and are looking for committee members that represent many different groups within our community, so please don't hesitate to sign up. Please contact Maggie Lynch  if you are interested in working with us.

Thank you for your support.

Stand up and be counted!!
