Module shortlisted for Innovation Award

April 27, 2010

“Virtual Environments: Is one life enough?” has been shortlisted for the 2010 Jennifer Burke Award for Innovation in Teaching and Learning. The award was established by Dublin City University and the Irish Learning Technology Association (ILTA) to recognise and reward innovative practice in Irish teaching and learning. Five nominees from across the Higher Education sector were invited to present their submissions to the panel of judges on 21st April at The Helix in DCU. The rigorous process involved individual presentations to each of the five jury members, including one of last year’s winning team from Trinity College Dublin, followed by an interview with the full panel. John O’Connor and Claudia Igbrude are very happy to have received this level of recognition for the innovation demonstrated by the module.

Karlin Lillingon, the technology journalist, was also on the jury. She writes about the experience in her Irish Times column.

The announcement of the winner will take place during the EdTech 2010 Conference in Athlone Institute of Technology over 20th and 21st May.
