AACTE Awards Program

Best Practice Awards

The AACTE Best Practice Awards recognize member institutions that demonstrate excellence with innovative or otherwise exemplary programs. Institutions can self-nominate or be nominated by others. Winners are chosen by an AACTE standing committee and recognized at the Annual Meeting.

Innovative Use of Technology

This award, sponsored by AACTE's Committee on Innovation and Technology, recognizes an innovative use of educational technologies in a school, college, or department of education (SCDE).

Applicants should identify the program's context, goals, and objectives; its components; and the impact technologies have had based on qualitative or quantitative research. Only programs that have been in place for at least 2 years will be considered.

The award winner will receive special recognition at AACTE's 70th Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.
