Eligibility and Criteria
The Brightspace Innovation Award is open to all instructors currently teaching at a post-secondary institution, regardless of discipline, level, or term of appointment.

Candidates do not need to be members of STLHE to apply.
Please note that the Brightspace Innovation Award is for individual achievement. Teams of instructors will not be considered. STLHE encourages team-based teaching and learning approaches and initiatives through the Alan Blizzard Award.
