Distance Education and eLearning

Excellence in eLearning Award

The Excellence in eLearning award recognizes faculty members for outstanding online course design. Winners are selected by a committee of volunteer faculty reviewers. Courses are rated using the Quality Matters rubric. 

Please make a note of the following:

 Thank you for your interest in DEeL sponsored awards. The donated funding source for the previously awarded “Excellence in eLearning Award” has expired. To continue highlighting faculty and their contributions to online teaching and learning at UNCW, DEeL will be using the 2021-2022 academic year to approve new mechanisms for spotlighting faculty excellence, including potential new awards, fellowship opportunities, and grants. Please contact elearning@uncw.edu for additional information in the Fall 2022 semester.
