Current online teachers may be nominated by fellow MSU faculty, students, supervisors or other interested individuals, or they may self-nominate. The deadline for all nominations is April 15. 

“We created this award as a way to identify and recognize an outstanding online teacher who exemplifies excellence and innovation in online teaching and course development,” said Susan Seal, executive director for MSU’s Center of Distance Education.
