Digital Education Strategies Team Wins 2014 Sloan-C Effective Practice Award

The Chang School’s Digital Education Strategies (DES) team has been recognized with the prestigious 2014 Sloan-C Effective Practice Award by the Online Learning Consortium.

The award is for Lake Devo, a role-play application created by DES in which learners create avatars and collaborate on scripts in real time. Easily adaptable across disciplines, Lake Devo is a way to practise problem-solving within a real-world context. Published presentations, including student-selected audio and visual elements and a discussion area, facilitate class-wide learning and peer-to-peer feedback.
