About CALT Awards
The primary purposes of the CALT Awards for Enhancing Teaching and Learning with Technology are to recognise the pedagogically-sound use of technology at Otago and sustain existing efforts in advancing teaching and learning with technology.
Winners will be awarded: $5000 (1st); $3500 (2nd); or $1500 (3rd) to be used towards personal academic development. HEDC support may also be available to sustain and expand your teaching enhancement.
Please feel free to contact Dr Ben Daniel at HEDC if you would like further information about the awards.
2017 Application Process
All Otago teaching staff are invited to submit entries using the following application form:
You can submit your entries to Jill Brunson from 1 November 2016 until 28 February 2017.
Once entries close, a judging panel will short-list entrants based on the following criteria:
- Appropriateness of educational design (e.g. how well the enhancement matches its intended learning goals);
- Approach to gathering evidence of educational effectiveness;
- Innovation in pedagogical approach (i.e. how this is new in your teaching context); and
- Potential applicability to other disciplines/teaching staff
Short-listed entrants will be required to share their enhancement at one of HEDC's Learning with Technology lunchtime seminars. The judging panel, as well as other colleagues from the university, will be present.
Entrants will also be required to grant the judging panel access to their teaching environments and resources (e.g. to be used as exemplars in professional development activities).
Winners will be decided following presentations given by shortlisted applicants at an awards seminar in mid-2017.
