Winners announced in the Jorum Learning and Teaching Competition 2010

The Jorum Learning and Teaching competition, which has seen record entries this year, has resulted in six winning resources - chosen and scored by a judging panel and a public vote.

The judging panel had the difficult task of whittling the entries down, and was asked to forward their top ten choices in rank order. Each entry received points based on their placing in each list. Once the final ten were calculated, they were placed on the Jorum Community Bay to allow for a public vote. A combination of the judge’s scores, and votes placed by the community resulted in the final six winners. Results were extremely close, with a few extra votes tipping the scale at the last minute.

This has been the first time we have opened the competition out to the public - allowing the community to cast their votes for their favourite resources. Seventy votes were received in a short space of time, deeming online voting to be popular method by Community Bay users.

Congratulations to the final six winners, and to all those who made it to the final ten, as all resources entered were of a very high standard.

Each of the six winners has been asked to attend a Jorum Session at the ALT-C conference to present their winning resources. This is to be held on Wednesday 8th September, in the main auditorium at 17.10pm. If you are attending the conference, why not come along to witness these amazing resources and the pedagogical framework around them.
