CAFE Publication Award 2: Online Learning Tool
The Canadian Association of Foundations of Education (CAFE) is introducing a new award this year that
will be awarded every three years at the same time as multi-authored or edited books. This award is for
an online learning tool. Generally speaking, a learning tool is developed from research and created
following a set of principles. The learning tool allows a user to work through ideas, concepts, or processes
related to the foundations of teacher education while demonstrating his or her thinking, planning, and/or
decision-making. Learning tools are often composed of several interchangeable learning objects.
We are seeking submissions for this award for the CAFE Publications Award 2. The purpose of this award
is to recognize learning tools that have made a major contribution to knowledge in the disciplines that fall
under the rubric of the foundations of teacher education and/or support knowledge in the foundations of
teacher education in Canada. These disciplines generally include history, philosophy, and sociology of
education, but also include other disciplines in the humanities and social sciences that contribute to
educational theory. This award will be presented at the CAFE Annual Meeting during the CSSE
Conference.
Criteria
The online learning tool must be produced and online between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2011.
