Nominations, applications sought for 2014 Awards for Excellence in Distance Learning

Purdue Extended Campus is seeking nominations and applications for the 2014 Awards for Excellence in Distance Learning.

The awards recognize faculty and instructional staff who demonstrate excellence in their distance or online projects. Two cash awards of $1,000 are funded by the Office of the Provost -- one each for a credit-bearing and a non-credit-bearing distance or online learning experience conducted through Purdue. 

Purdue has consistently dedicated financial resources to increase the number of online sections available to students. Online course development and new video facilities are among the tools available to enhance online and distance course quality. 

Awards are open to faculty, instructors or staff members as individuals or as a team across all Purdue campuses. In the event that a team wins an award, the $1,000 will divided equally among team members. At least one of the nominees for each award must be a current faculty member, instructor or staff member at Purdue. The related distance/online learning experience must have been offered within the past two years.

The application is available at www.distance.purdue.edu. The deadline for applications and nominations is March 10.
