Mt. Royal, NJ - 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 Recognition Luncheon on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 at the Planet Hollywood Hotel in Las Vegas, NV at eLearning 2019. ITC will provide a registration discount to each award recipient to attend eLearning 2019 on February 10-14, 2019 in Las Vegas, so they can accept their award.  At the presentation, a member from each panel of judges will briefly share how each recipient was innovative, unique, or exemplary.
