OLC's Digital Learning Innovation Awards

Jul 15, 2017

Online Learning Consortium (OLC) hosts an annual award showcasing the exemplary use of digital courseware to improve student success, especially among minority, first-generation and other underrepresented student groups. With a focused lens on increasing the number of undergraduate students who complete foundation or gateway courses, the award will recognize projects that inspire innovation, increase access, support implementation, improve outcomes, enable accessibility, and promote sustainability in the use of digital courseware. 

While funding initiatives have informed the emerging use of digital courseware in post-secondary education, faculty projects or institutional implementations can motivate other institutions through successes and barriers. More institutions need to add their own experiences with digital courseware initiatives to continue advancing the field. For that reason, only projects that are at a stage of implementation with measurable success and lessons learned should apply for this award.                                                                                                                   

To accelerate the successful implementation of digital courseware that results in increased student success, OLC has two categories of awards:

● Institutional Award – $100,000 (up to three awarded);

● Faculty-led Team Award – $10,000 (up to 10 awarded).                                                                                                                                            

Application deadline extended to July 15th, 2017!
