Teaching Matters

e-Learning Excellence Awards 2015

Three DIT eLearning projects have been shortlisted for an Excellence Award at the upcoming 14th European Conference on eLearning. Congratulations go to Dr Frances Boylan (LTTC) for her submission about The 12 Apps of Christmas online course; Dr Pauline Rooney (LTTC) for her submission about the online CPD module ‘Technology Enhanced Learning, Teaching & Assessment’, and to Alice Luby (School of Marketing) for her submission about her cross-faculty project Action Accounting.

There were 70 submissions initially for these awards from which only 40 made it through to the second round. Those selected were then invited to write a detailed case study on their project, and finally 12 were shortlisted as finalists. Frances, Pauline and Alice will have to present to a panel of judges, along with the nine other finalists, at the conference in the UK at the end of October. We would like to wish them all the best and fingers crossed! Watch this space!
