Learning Technologies Development Grant


2017 PROPOSAL DEADLINE HAS PASSED

The Center for Teaching and Learning, in collaboration with the Digital Learning Initiative, Educational Technology Group, and the Office of Digital Learning & Innovation, is pleased to announce a grant program for technology-enabled active learning classroom initiatives.

Funding will support faculty and staff and may be awarded at the following levels:

  • Up to $2,000 for 1-2 faculty to develop a short-term project impacting a small group of students.
  • Up to $10,000 for a small group of faculty working across two or more courses or sections to develop a project impacting students in several courses or sections.
  • Up to $50,000 for a group of faculty working across multiple courses and/or disciplines to develop a multi-year project impacting a significant number of students.

Successful proposals will involve the adoption, development, or integration of learning technologies and demonstrate a connection between the proposed project and teaching strategies that have been shown to enhance student learning. The course(s) may be offered at the undergraduate or graduate level. Proposals that demonstrate potential to improve teaching and learning broadly across the curriculum are especially encouraged.

The review committee will be comprised of unit directors reporting to the Associate Provost for Digital Learning & Innovation. Initial review may involve provisional feedback to the proposing faculty/group with the encouragement to re-submit. Proposals that navigate the initial review with a favorable outcome will be forwarded to the Associate Provost of Digital Learning & Innovation for administration and planning for final approval of funding and project budget.
