SUNY Online Teaching, in collaboration with the University of Central Florida (UCF), sponsors an initiative to recognize excellence in online and blended teaching practices across SUNY in a joint Effective Practices Award Program via the award-winning Teaching Online Pedagogical Repository (TOPR). TOPR is an open public resource hosted by UCF that reviews, selects, and organizes effective online practices for online faculty, instructional designers and other online teaching and learning practitioners. Submissions from SUNY in the Online Teaching & Learning track are invited to be submitted for consideration for inclusion in TOPR.
