ITC Announces the Recipients of the ITC 2021 Awards for Excellence in eLearning

Congratulations to these outstanding award recipients!  The innovation and diligence exemplified by each award winner mark them as exemplary members of our community. Judges included members of the ITC board of directors, past award winners, and attendees at ITC’s annual Leadership Academy. The judging panels carefully reviewed each nomination, the accompanying Web site or online course materials, and held each of the winners to the high standards and best-practices exemplified by previous ITC award winners.  This recognition is extremely well-deserved.

These outstanding distance educators will be recognized at a special live recognition luncheon during the Annual Conference – eLearning on Tuesday, February 22, 2022 from 12:15pm – 1:45pm Pacific. During the presentation, a member from each panel of judges will briefly share how each recipient was innovative, unique, or exemplary.
