Do you know or work with a great online or blended teacher at your school? Do you work with an eLearning leader, someone who has advocated for and led online and blended initiatives?
The eLearning Strategies Symposium is now accepting nominations for two eLearning awards, which will be presented on December 12th during the ESS keynote address. The CUE and Stanislaus COE-sponsored eLearning Strategies Symposium is an annual California conference for K-12 educators, administrators, and advocates focused on online and blended learning.
Online Teacher of the Year
The Online Teacher of the Year Award recognizes an online teacher who has made a noteworthy contribution to eLearning in an online or blended setting. Supporting and engaging all students online is the key element in this award. Nominees must be currently teaching online with K-12 students. Nominations may be submitted by the individual nominee or by another person who is able to support the nomination through personal involvement with the nominee.
The eLearning Advocate Award is presented to an individual or organization that has contributed significantly to promoting, advocating, or implementing eLearning at their school, district, county or state. It may include organizations, members of the state and/or federal legislature or their staffs, educators, or individuals who have made sustained and/or extraordinary efforts in promoting eLearning to advance student achievement.
Nominations are now open until September 15th. For more information, visit our ESS Awards page.
Early-bird registration for the Symposium is just $165 for groups of two or more or $179 for individuals. The symposium includes two keynote addresses and more than 60 concurrent sessions, all focused on online or blended learning. Visit our ESS registration page for more information.
Ramsey Musallam, a TED Talk alumnus and blended learning pioneer, will provide our closing keynote on Saturday and Amy Burvall, a YouTube sensation on the History for Music Lovers channel, is our opening keynote on Friday. We’ve also begun posing some of our accepted sessions on the main ESS page.
