An instructor at UAEU since 2013, Max Williams gained an "Exemplary" status in the Blackboard Exemplary Course Program Award for his course "Introduction to Academic English."
In line with the recognition of the awardee’s accomplishment, he received a congratulatory letter and award from Lee Blakemore, Blackboard Chief Client Officer, and recognition from the dean of University College at UAEU.
Academic English courses instructor Max Williams said, “I am very honored to be awarded the Blackboard Exemplary Course Program Award. The recognition is greatly appreciated, and I will endeavor to continue my efforts of achieving excellence for the benefit of my learners and the institution to which I belong”.
The Exemplary Course Program holds in high esteem the instructors and course designers whose courses demonstrate best practices. It has been used for nearly two decades to assess and improve the courses of thousands of instructors, teachers, and designers. The Exemplary Course Program Awards were expanded when it was combined with Anthology in 2021.
To be considered for this honor, applicants must be a user of the Blackboard Learn by Anthology learning management system. Submitted courses are evaluated by other course developers, instructional designers, teachers, and professors using the Exemplary Course Program Rubric, and must demonstrate excellence in Course Design, Interaction and Collaboration, Assessment, and Learner Support.
