The Art Historians Interested in Pedagogy and Technology, a College Art Association affiliated society, invites entries for its first Innovative Course Design Competition. The purpose of the competition is to support and promote excellence in technology-mediated instruction and to provide a glimpse of the best practices currently employed within the discipline. This award offers art history faculty the opportunity to receive national recognition for their innovative approaches to teaching with technology.
AHPT is pleased to announce that Dr. Marilyn Aronberg Lavin of Princeton University will serve as guest judge for the competition. In addition to her distinguished career as a scholar of Italian Renaissance art, Dr. Lavin is a pioneer in teaching art history with technology. The Piero Project, founded by Dr. Lavin in 1989, exemplifies the potential of art history’s use of digital resources.
The competition is open to art history faculty employing digital or other technologies in the classroom. The competition is open to face-to-face, hybrid/blended, and online courses at any level. It is furthermore open to entire courses or units within a traditional art history course. Four finalists will be selected to present their courses at the College Art Association annual meeting in February, 2007.

A 3-5 page overview of the course (or unit within course) addressing its innovative use of technology
Samples of student work/assessments
CV of the course author(s)
