Just to maybe promote some discussion, I'll say that I know that the Diamond Awards have been discussed and revamping that program is on the roadmap. Any comments about the Diamond Awards you want to share?
As a newbie for ATU, what is diamond awards program?
The Diamond Award is ARBUG's exemplary course award. It was patterned after the Blackboard Catalyst award and we encouraged Diamond award winners to submit for the Bb Catalyst award. It was a great way to get recognition for instructors and institutions that were utilizing good instructional pedagogy and design in their courses. Winners were often encouraged to make presentations to share those great ideas among their peers at ARBUG conferences.
At this time we are looking at revamping the Rubric that we use and also at the procedural issues around training reviewers, handling submissions, and funding the awards themselves.
If you have any questions feel free to post and I'll answer then if I can. We are looking for suggestions to get more instructors involved in the ARBUG community.
