Call for Nominations : German Online (GO) Award 2012 - Deadline January 30th 2013

Dear friends of GermanStudies.ca, we are please to announce the  Call for Nominations for the German Online – GO Award 2012!

The Canadian Association for University Teachers of German (CAUTG) and the DAAD and UVic co-funded project GermanStudies.ca invite nominations for the 2012 "German Online (GO)" award for the best online course materials in the field of German and Germany-related Studies at Canadian Colleges and Universities.

This award honours the enormous effort scholars and teachers invest in developing online materials and it is also an expression of appreciation for sharing the results. The award carries a prize of $ 1,000 and will be awarded at the annual meeting of the CAUTG in in Victoria, 1-4 June, 2013. The award winner will also have the opportunity to present the project at the conference and will be featured on GermanStudies.ca.

We are looking for course pages that show innovative and engaging ways of presenting course-related materials (e.g. modules, student projects), integration of Web 2.0 components, teaching platforms like WebCT, or other internet-based teaching materials for university or college courses. Please also submit a brief statement (no longer than one page) explaining why the site(s) should be considered for this award.

Members of any department can submit online materials for consideration, as long as the content of the materials is related to German studies. We accept self-nominations as well as nominations for other colleagues' site(s). In either case, we will require access to all relevant pages. If this poses a problem, please let us know. All sensitive material will be treated confidentially. The award committee consists of representatives of GermanStudies.ca, the CAUTG and past winners of the GO-Award.

Nomination Deadline: 30. Jan. 2013.
