Teaching Resources: Teaching with Technology Grants
Teaching with Technology grants are designed to help faculty members enhance their teaching through the use of technology. Any faculty member who has an idea for using technology to enhance the curriculum is welcome to submit a proposal. Funds can be used to attend conferences on teaching with technology, provide training on the use of a technology in teaching, acquire software for use in a particular course or curricular sequence, create class-specific web sites with features that go beyond traditional web pages, purchase equipment directly necessary to the success of the project, and so on.
Faculty interested in a Teaching with Technology grant should write a proposal identifying the purpose of the project, providing details of what will be needed in order to accomplish project, and a full budget. Projects that can be extended to other courses or disciplines, or which involve more than one faculty member, are especially encouraged. Faculty members may contact Instructional Technology and Training (firstname.lastname@example.org) for assistance and support in developing the proposals prior to submission. The typical grant period is one year, although longer requests may be possible depending on the scope and nature of the proposal. Any funds not used during the grant period will be made available for other grant recipients.
Tenure track and continuing faculty who receive Teaching with Technology grants will be awarded a $1,000 stipend. Recipients must submit a report to the Provost at the end of the grant period, describing the project and its contributions to their teaching, and share information about their project in a Technology Symposium sponsored by IITS and via a web site linked from the Provost’s Office. Faculty who would like to see the variety of technology projects supported by this program should visit this site.
Interested faculty members should submit a proposal to the Provost’s Office (via email@example.com) with a copy to Instructional Technology and Training (via firstname.lastname@example.org). Grants are awarded on a rolling basis. Applicants typically will hear back about their proposal in four weeks. After notification of an award, IITS will contact grant recipients to set up meetings to discuss each project.
