The Centre for e-Learning recognized for innovative projects at the CNIE Awards Festival
The University of Ottawa has once again gained national recognition thanks to the work of the Centre for e-Learning. The Teaching and Learning Support Service's Centre for e-Learning recently received two awards for the Canadian Network for Innovation in Education (CNIE) for the following projects:
“I could not be happier that my team received such prestigious awards,” says the director of the Centre for e-Learning Mr. Richard Pinet, “because we work closely with professors to develop ingenious tools for their courses, which enhance the student experience and their engagement.”
The Centre for e-Learning provides expert consultation and support services in the development and implementation of technology-based courses, as well as online teaching and learning materials. Its team, composed of instructional designers, web developers, graphic artists and programmers, participate in the development of online courses and projects which demonstrate the University of Ottawa’s leadership among Canadian Universities.
The CNIE Awards Festival recognizes excellence in innovative educational practices in the use of technology to support and advance learning at regional, national and international levels in distance, open, distributed, blended and traditional settings. This competition is adjudicated by a committee of professional peers from across Canada.
