2018 Immersive Learning Awards
Immersive learning brings together student-driven teams guided by faculty mentors to create high-impact learning experiences. Through immersive learning, students earn credit for working collaboratively with businesses, nonprofits, and government agencies to address community challenges.
Purpose: The Immersive Learning Awards are given in recognition of demonstrated excellence in the creation, mentoring, and execution of immersive learning projects. Four faculty awards of $2000 will be presented by President Mearns at an award reception to be held on Thursday, January 25, 2018.
Nomination Requirements: All immersive learning projects that were completed or that are still on-going from January 1, 2016-July 30, 2017 are eligible for nomination. Projects that fit within existing departmental curriculum (with or without grant funding) are encouraged to apply. Projects winning previous Immersive Learning Awards are NOT eligible for the 2018 Awards. Projects nominated for previous awards that meet the above timeline are welcome to be re-nominated.
Nominations may be made by students, faculty, staff, or administrators. Self-nominations by project mentors are strongly encouraged! Nominations must be supported by the chair of the department to which the faculty mentor(s) report. Deadline for submissions is 5pm on October 16, 2017.
