Four founding members of the Ed Tech Learning Network (EdTechLN) were awarded the Award for Creative Excellence at the Joint Council of Extension Professionals (JCEP) held in February. Those members include Jamie Seger and Jerry Thomas, Ohio State University; Paul Hill, Utah State University; and Barbara Chamberlin, New Mexico State University.
Jamie and Paul were present at the conference to receive the award as well as to present as part of the nationally-broadcast JCEP Virtual Town Hall.
According to JCEP, the Award for Creative Excellence was established to:
…recognize those individuals or small teams and their unique contributions. For the purposes of this award, innovation is an approach to emerging issues or addressing existing issues in exceptionally creative or novel ways that get results, and that others want to emulate.
The EdTechLN is part of the eXtension Innovation Lab and is the educational technology resource and support network for Cooperative Extension professionals.
