ATLAS 2018 Award - Call for Nominations

Call for Nominations
Deadline for application submissions: February 26, 2018 now March 2, 2018

The Apereo Teaching & Learning Awards (ATLAS) is awarded annually at the Open Apereo Conference to up to six winners who "demonstrate innovative teaching and learning using" Apereo technologies, such as Sakai, which powers OWL. "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."

The ATLAS committee "defines an innovative course or 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 major goals of the award are to:

  • promote excellent pedagogy and innovation in teaching and learning
  • create a community of educators who want to share teaching and learning practices
  • encourage greater faculty involvement in the Apereo community"

Information about the award and about past winners, and the application form can be found on the Apereo site:
