Dr. Lisa Thompson Sousa, an Instructional Designer at Sul Ross State University, has been recognized by her peers with the Exemplary Course Program (ECP) Award for the second year in a row.
The ECP Award, presented by education technology company Anthology, recognizes 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.
Dr. Sousa was selected a winner for her course “Advanced Survey of Exceptional Children.” The course demonstrated excellence in Course Design, Interaction and Collaboration, Assessment and Learner Support.
For nearly two decades, the Exemplary Course Program has honored instructors and course designers whose courses demonstrate best practices. The Exemplary Course Program Awards were expanded when Blackboard combined with Anthology in 2021. Since its founding, thousands of instructors, teachers and designers have used the Exemplary Course Program to evaluate and improve their courses with recognized best practices. To be considered for the honor, applicants must be a user of the Blackboard Learn by Anthology learning management system. Submitted courses are evaluated by other course developers, instructional designers, teachers and professors using the Exemplary Course Program Rubric.
“These educators represent some of the very best when it comes to developing courses that engage learners and drive student success,” said Jim Brigadier, president of Global Markets at Anthology. “At Anthology, we’re proud to announce the 2023 cohort of Exemplary Course Program Award winners and thank them for their commitment to engaging students and helping them achieve their goals.”
