This year the OCW Consortium introduced the ACE-awards at the yearly conference at MIT in Cambridge. One of the winners last year was Walter Lewin. These awards will be presented yearly at the global conference. The call for nominations is just out:
The OpenCourseWare Consortium is pleased to announce the call for nominations for the second annual Awards for OpenCourseWare Excellence (ACE). The OCW ACE's will be presented at the next global OpenCourseWare Consortium meeting in Cambridge, U.K., April 16-18, 2012.
The Awards for OpenCourseWare Excellence recognize outstanding individual contributions to the OCW/OER movement, exemplary OCW member sites and excellent individual course presentations. A panel of voting members will select ACE site and course winners from finalists culled by the award committee. Individual winners will be selected by a vote of the board of directors.
Nominations for individuals, sites and courses will be accepted through January 13, 2012 and may be submitted through the following page (http://ocwconsortium.org/ace) or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations for sites and courses are encouraged to be submitted as two-minute video/screen capture tours of the relevant content. Visit the above web page for complete information on preliminary criteria, rules and eligibility.
The OCWC is seeking volunteers to serve on the ACE Committee to refine award criteria and select award finalists. The Consortium is also seeking a sponsor for the awards ceremony at the upcoming Consortium meeting.
Last time we didn't nominate any courses of our TU Delft OpenCourseWare project. This time we will! Which courses should we nominate for the ACE-awards? Please leave a comment below.
