Do you create open educational learning and teaching resources? If so, the Jorum Learning and Teaching Competition is for you.
Following on from last year’s successful competition, which resulted in six highly creative and valuable resources winning places, we are pleased to announce that the 2010 competition is now open and accepting entries.
The competition runs again in conjunction with the ALT-C conference in Nottingham, 7-9 September, and the six winning entrants will have the opportunity to present and showcase their resources at the conference.
The panel of judges will be looking for exciting and innovative resources created under a creative commons licence, and entries will be judged against a set of criteria – appropriateness, engagement, effectiveness and reusability.
We have engaged another great range of judges this year, including Russell Stannard and James Clay, who are both advocates of sharing resources openly.
Final judging will also take on a new twist this year, as the judges will be asked to rank their top ten resources, which will then be placed on the Jorum Community Bay to allow for a public vote – so never mind The X-Factor – vote for your choice of resource to win!
You will be able to vote from 19th August, and details on how to vote will be announced nearer the time.
There are three cash prizes up for grabs, along with three commended awards.
Closing date – Friday 25th June 2010
