Engage Awards: Excellent Opportunity to Innovate with your Students

April 14, 2010 by Doug Worsham

The Engage Awards are back with another excellent opportunity for you and your students to innovate together.

Engage offers funding and support for instructors to explore new ground with their teaching. Then, based on instructor and student surveys, Engage evaluates the results and disseminates findings to campus.

The theme for 2010-2011 is timely - Digital Media Assignments:

In a digital media assignment students demonstrate their learning of course content through the creation of multimedia learning objects using video, audio, still images and text. Examples of digital media assignments might involve students creating
short video documentaries, digital stories, audio and enhanced podcasts,
"digital essays", and other types of multimedia presentations. (adapted from the Engage website)
