Provost Technology Grants for Innovative Education
The Provost is once again pleased to announce the opportunity to apply for faculty grants in technology. Instructional Technology is increasingly essential in the realm of effective teaching and learning with many benefits for the faculty and students. Technological tools have developed into a necessity because of the benefits they provide along with the innovative means to teaching and learning.
The Provost understands the importance of technology as a tool for learning and therefore wishes to offer ten grants with a maximum budget of $1,000 each. Applications should demonstrate the potential for instructional innovation in a particular course taught by the applicant, by proposing a new use of technology in the classroom for student learning. This grant is meant to support technical innovation in face-to-face courses, as opposed to online instruction.
This initiative seeks proposals from full-time faculty members that demonstrate the incorporation and application of a technology into your coursework. Possible opportunities for funding could include:
- Implement technology to enhance your teaching methods and address different learning styles.
- New computer hardware or mobile devices for your students to use in the classroom.
- The creation of new and innovative educational opportunities using digital and/or online platforms which can include:
- Develop learning activities that demonstrate student engagement
- Activities or resources using innovative social networks that can be integrated into course work
- Incorporate/Build interactive simulation activities or resources
- Address critical unmet needs in teaching, supplement existing learning objectives, explore new ideas, and/or implement model programs.
- Propose new teaching strategies that offer significant opportunities for positive change.
Applications must outline and clearly illustrate:
- The specific technology or technologies you plan to implement.
- How this technology will support your teaching efforts?
- The impact new technology could have for you and your students.
- An assessment model. How will you evaluate the success of this innovation?
- A plan for implementation and sustainability.
Successful proposals that will need continued funding for technology acquisitions can submit an application through the Student Technology Fee.
- Be no more than four pages.
- Include a proposal abstract of 75 words or less.
- Include a project description which can be easily comprehended by those in different disciplines.
- Include a statement of objectives and anticipated outcomes, including how grantees expect their efforts will serve to improve student experiences and outcomes.
- Show how you will share the results of your project with other colleagues within Pace (i.e. doing a session at the Faculty Institute).
- Include a detailed budget.
Online applications should be submitted by Friday, October 25, 2019. If you have any questions, please contact Lindsay Constantino at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be a review committee to award the grants.
Funding will commence as early as January 2020. Projects will continue through the Spring semester.
A final assessment report will be required by the end of the Academic Year (June 30, 2020).
Chairs are required to sign off on all proposals.
