Anthology Announces First Cohort of 2023 Exemplary Course Award Winners

We are pleased to announce the first cohort of 2023 Exemplary Course Program (ECP) Award winners. The ECP Awards recognize faculty and course designers from schools, colleges, and universities around the world who develop engaging and innovative courses that represent the very best in technology and learning. ECP winners demonstrate excellence in course design, interaction and collaboration, assessment, and learner support. 

The Exemplary Course Program recognizes instructors and course designers whose courses demonstrate best practices in four major areas: Course Design, Interaction and Collaboration, Assessment, and Learner Support. The winners were selected by peers in the education community including course developers, instructional designers, teachers, and professors using the Exemplary Course Program Rubric.

The initial cohort of 2023 winners are listed below. The second cohort of winners will be announced ahead of Anthology Together, Anthology’s annual conference occurring July 17-20. All those that are participating in the ECP are encouraged to attend. 

Submissions for the 2023 ECP Awards are being accepted through May 19.
