The Chuck D. Dziuban Award for Excellence in Online Teaching recognizes one outstanding UCF faculty member who has taught at least one blended or fully online (M, W, V, RV) course within the previous academic year.

Deadline for Submissions

The next submission period will take place during fall 2018. A faculty review committee is in the process of revising award criteria and submission processes and establishing a new supporting workshop series. Additional information will be posted here when available. Important Note: To align with Florida State University System (SUS) quality assurance and awards initiatives, to be eligible for consideration, 2018 Dziuban Award submissions must first receive a High Quality design designation through a course design review facilitated by a Center for Distributed Learning instructional designer. Faculty interested in preparing a submission for the 2018 Dziuban Award should contact their instructional designer for details on obtaining the High Quality design designation. (Faculty may look up their current instructional designer using the ID LookUp Tool.)
