The University of New Brunswick, and partners, were recently awarded a 2015 Canadian Network for Innovation in Education (CNIE) Award of Excellence.
The CNIE-RCIE Award of Excellence was in the category of Excellence and Innovation in the Integration of Technology in Educational Practices/Collaboration for online modules developed for postsecondary education professors and instructors.
The site – entitled Supporting Students with Disabilities – is intended to better equip instructors to support students with disabilities by understanding how their learning and assessment environments are impacted.
Online modules offering video interviews with students, instructors, case studies and other resources are housed on the new site.
UNB’s contribution included module content, shooting and editing 33 videos (including contributing some of the instructor and students recorded in the videos), creating the online site (both programming and graphics) and hosting the site.
The project was a joint effort by Mount Allison University, New Brunswick Community College, New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, St. Thomas University and UNB Fredericton and Saint John, with funding and project management by the Government of New Brunswick’s Department of Postsecondary Education, Training and Labour.
