LOCAL COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR RECEIVES AWARD FOR INNOVATIVE EXCELLENCE IN TEACHING, LEARNING, AND TECHNOLOGY

International Conference on College Teaching and Learning Honors 40 Teaching Faculty

The International Conference on College Teaching and Learning and the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning congratulate Karl M. Kapp, Professor of Instructional Technology at Bloomsburg University, recipient of the 2008 Award for Innovative Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Technology. The awards ceremony, held on April 16, 2008, in Jacksonville, Florida, honored 40 teaching faculty from across the U.S. and around the world for their innovative contributions to teaching and learning in higher education.

“This award is a way for us to recognize the highly creative contributions that are made day in and day out by outstanding teaching faculty in colleges and universities around the world,” said Jeana Davis, coordinator of the conference. “It also provides a venue for them to share those ideas with their colleagues at other institutions—improving higher education teaching and learning opportunities for all of us.”

A complete list of this year’s award recipients can be found at the conference Website. [Some really talented and forward thinking faculty members at this conference.]

The International Conference on College Teaching and Learning was established in 1988 to promote the exchange of ideas to improve the teaching and learning process through innovative and effective uses of pedagogy and technology in higher education. Complete conference details are available online at www.teachlearn.org.

It was an honor to be nominated and to receive this award. Thank you to my Dean who provided the nomination and to Karen who worked on the application. Also to my Mother, Father and to the academy and...well you get the idea. But I especially want to thank my STUDENTS who provide energy, ideas and enthusiasm that makes it all possible
