SHEILA wins ALT award 2019

SHEILA wins Association for Learning Technology (ALT) 2019 research project award 

The 2019 Association for Learning Technology awards took place on Wednesday 4th September with the SHEILA project receiving the ALT 2019 research project award.  ALT brings together practitioners with researchers and policy makers interested in technology.  ALT awards recognise and celebrate excellent practice and exceptional achievement in the field of learning technology, which they defined as "the broad range of communication, information and related technologies that can be used to support learning, teaching and assessment".   

The judging panel found that this project was exemplary in a number of aspects. It provides a valuable resource to the higher education community who are coming to terms with a new technology. It also demonstrates how a new approach needs to take account of multiple perspectives, and incorporate ethical considerations. The methods of open practice and sharing were also a model for many other projects.

We wish all those involved in the SHEILA research project congratulations on their wonderful achievement, and thanks to everyone voting for the project.
