Nominations are now open for new members of the Steering Committee and this year’s Recognition Awards.
CLAMP is accepting nominations of member colleges to serve on the Steering Committee; terms are for three years. You need not specify who will represent the college on the committee now, and you can nominate schools other than your own.
The nomination criteria are:
- The institution must be a four-year liberal arts college or institution.
- The institution must be a member of CLAMP
Our current steering committee members are: Beloit College, Centre College, Connecticut College, Kenyon College, Lafayette College, Occidental College, and Union College.
Connecticut College and Union College rotate off the committee this year. The current committee members will choose the two new members based on nominations submitted by the community, with an eye towards maintaining geographical diversity.
The deadline for nominations is June 1, 2017.
The CLAMP Recognition Awards are awarded annually to one programmer (e.g.; hacker) and one instructional technologist (e.g.; doc’er) to acknowledge outstanding achievement as members of the organization. These achievements include work on Moodle development, Moodle documentation, CLAMP organization and/or recruitment to CLAMP.
In 2016-17, the value of this award is $500. To receive the award, individuals:
- must be a member of a current CLAMP school
- can not be currently serving on the steering committee
This year, the the Steering Committee will accept nominations from member schools. Nominations must be submitted by June 1, 2017.
