the Silver Lining for Learning team has won the 2022 AECT Distinguished Development Award. For a completely unfunded, passion project that started at the beginning of the pandemic and is going strong even today, this recognition means a lot to us. And… we are in some august company if you see the list of previous award winners.
This award recognizes scholars who have made extraordinary design and development contributions to the interdisciplinary fields of educational technology research and development.
In particular the webinar series was recognized for our “vision and effort for developing and continuing to engage communities in this rich portal with over a hundred episodes of timely and thought-provoking dialogues and resources since March 21, 2020. These episodes are widely watched informally as well as utilized in undergraduate and graduate courses in education in the past two years.”
This series (and award) would not have been possible without these guests who we have had the privilege to speak with over the past two-and-a-half years. It is their creativity, humanity, courage and care for education that drives the show – so thank you to all of them, there would be no show without them.
