Lixl receives award for excellence in online education

The Award for Excellence in Online Education for 2011-12 was presented to Dr. Andreas Lixl (Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.) Lixl, who joined UNCG in 1987, pioneered online course sequences by creating interdisciplinary learning experiences, including undergraduate language courses and distributed education initiatives at UNCG. He developed online literature and culture courses for the German and Liberal Studies programs, as well as video-conference courses taught for the German Studies Consortium on half a dozen campuses across the UNC system.

This new online teaching award is given for innovation and excellence in the development and/or teaching of online courses at UNCG. It was presented for the first time this year.
