This morning I received an email about the UK having their own regional finals for the IMS Learning Impact Awards for 2009. Over the past two years there have been two successful UK entries to the Awards, WebPA (Loughborough University) being one and OpenLearn from the Open University the other.
I would encourage anyone with a project in the UK to have a go and see where you get. There is no harm in trying and if you are successful you will be awarded with the recognition of your project within your institution and the UK. Being an award wining project means a lot for both the project and those involved. If you don't know where to start, I would recommend contacting the folks at JISC Cetis as they know the community at IMS better than anyone. You can also read about my experiences of attending the conference and the award process by reading the past entries I made related to the IMS Awards.
