Outstanding Commitment to Excellence and Innovation in Distance Learning

This award is for the person, institution, or corporation who has done the most to benefit and advance the applied practice of distance learning, in the opinion of our members, during the past year. For example, an innovative teacher who has passed knowledge and skills on to other teachers in the field or the most innovative solution to applied problems developed within an educational institution or private corporation. Beginning in 2014, awards will be given for each of TxDLA's constituencies: K-12, 2-Year and 4-Year Higher Ed, Corporate, Nonprofit and Government/Military.
