The call for nominations for the 2012 Jennifer Burke Award for Innovation in Teaching and Learning is now open. The award is in memory of Jennifer Burke who the Irish Learning Technology Community lost in June 2007. I was a finalist last year, but sadly did not win. The award is co-sponsored by DCU and ILTA.
I had great fun doing this last year and would thoroughly recommend that learning and teaching innovators from Ireland should consider nominating themselves or getting a nomination. The award is going from strength to strength and this year the finalists will get to show the learning technology community their innovation at the EdTech Conference which is being held at NUI Maynooth on 31st May/1st June. The call for papers for this conference is being issued in the next week or two.
There is so much innovation going on at all levels of education in Ireland and it is great that it is formerly recognised in memory of Jennifer.
