About the EUNIS Dørup Award
The EUNIS Dørup Award is given for the outstanding and innovative application of information technology (IT) in an educational setting. It was founded in commemoration of former member of the EUNIS Board of Directors, Jens Dørup.
The award was handed out for the first time at EUNIS 2008. This first award session and ceremony took place at the University of Aarhus: very appropriately the workplace of the late Jens Dørup for more than 25 years.
The award contest is organised by the EUNIS Learning and Teaching Special Interest Group in collaboration with the current award chairperson and the President of EUNIS.
The award is given for an innovative way of using existing or new information technologies to enhance learning. The project must combine innovation, pedagogy and technology as key factors for creating more effective and engaging learning. Evidence to show the benefits will be essential.
