Katy Weber, Dan Attwood and Liam Greenslade all triumphed at the fourth annual Hi5 e-Learning Awards, which celebrate the efforts of staff in engaging students through the use of IT.
A number of other MidKent College nominees were also present at the ceremony, held at Westminster Kingsway College, London, last month.
E-learning manager Rosie Douglas said: “These are well-deserved awards.
“When we moved into our new Medway Campus in 2009, the ICT facilities made it possible for staff to use technology more interactively. All classrooms are multimedia and it’s very encouraging to see our staff recognised for their innovation”.
Applied Science lecturer Katy Weber was named winner of the Innovation Award (beginner level) for her Crime Scene Investigation classes, during which she used video recorders and mobile phones to record, upload and share realistic evidence.
This, said the judges, helped bring the subject of Applied Science alive, stimulating real learning and enabling student participation.
ICT technical support engineer Dan Attwood was the winner of the Technical Infrastructure Award (advanced level) for developing and implementing a Personalised Learning Programme (PLP) that has been enthusiastically adopted by both students and staff.
Meanwhile, A-level Sociology lecturer Liam Greenslade finished runner-up in the Learning Support Award (advanced level) for piloting a simple yet creative use of Google Docs to enable a student with a severe physical disability to fully participate.
In doing so, Liam developed a blueprint for accessibility support throughout the College.
