The Awards’ management team recognises that industry sectors may differ significantly and, as such, judging will be merit based, not comparative.
To leverage the best responses from entrants, the framing of the criteria has been designed with critical questioning that has been derived from our research and feedback during a decade of awards management and adjudicating. Each scoring section is a pressure point, designed as a task so that the entrant can navigate the criteria pragmatically, and allows the judges to score each criterion validly, and objectively. Entrants are encouraged to highlight the significance of the project’s context and business case in – Criteria (Part A, 1). This will create the narrative and impact the quality and integrity of the submission for adjudicating.
Judges are remunerated for their services, to support the highest standard of adjudicating. They are explicitly trained in the awards-adjudicating processes and systems and are selected for their professional expertise and knowledge of modern learning, capability, technologies and employee-management practices.
Judges are selected through a nomination process. To be accepted for initial evaluation a person must have been nominated by three individuals from separate organisations. Self-nominations are not accepted. Nominations for potential judges need to address, in 150 words or fewer, the nominee’s credentials for judging, in an email to email@example.com Judges are limited to 1 term (3 years). There are no vendors on the judging panels or awards management team.
The quality of the LearnX Live Awards is such that you may need to include confidential information as part of your entry. The Awards team guarantees that all information supplied will be restricted to the awards’ management team/judges and remain strictly confidential. Applications are released to the judging panel after the deadline closes. All submitted materials are deleted and/or destroyed post judging. Awards are judged in order of their online submission in each category – e.g. the first award submitted for Best Online Learning Model gets judged first and the last award submitted for Best Online Learning Model gets judged last.
Judges’ decisions are final, and no correspondence will be entered into prior/post judging. process.
