UPCEA Strategic Innovation In Online Education Award
The award recognizes an institution of higher education (i.e. campus, system, or consortium) that has, at an institutional level, set and met innovative goals focused on online education and been strategic in the planning, development, implementation and sustainability in line with the institutional mission. Examples include, but are not limited to, authentic institutional online organizational structure, partnership models to achieve specific goals, maximizing resource efficiencies, improving the learning experience for faculty and students, or the use of technology and learning design to advance online education and address institutional goals.
This award is aligned with the Online Administration Network which serves to provide shared information, effective practices and networking opportunities for individuals responsible for the management, design, implementation and assessment of online efforts. The network also is intended to bridge the issues and challenges between the administrative functions of online learning and the design of online learning. The award recognizes an institution (broadly defined) that has achieved excellence and innovation in strategies used to meet goals and objectives focused on online education.
