ACADEMIC INNOVATION GRANTS
Looking to enrich your course through technology but need funding to purchase equipment or hire a student assistant? The Academic Innovation Grants Program exists to facilitate faculty and department innovation in teaching and learning through the application of the latest in instructional technology.
Faculty and instructors submit proposals that are reviewed by the Academic Innovation Committee in spring semester. Download the packet of information and submit proposal online.
Proposals for a single round of funding are open from Monday, January 5 to Wednesday, March 4, 2015 with winners announced in May. Questions can be directed to Sarah Knoblauch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
INFRASTRUCTURE FOR LEARNING
For equipment upgrades or recurring funding, the Infrastructure for Learning Program supports the long-term evolution and maintenance of the inventory of instructional infrastructure in CLA. This program option is intended to utilize strategic planning with regard to your departmental technology equipment.
Department Chairs submit a single plan for their department for the following year that is reviewed by the Infrastructure for Learning Committee, made up of technology and space professionals from departments across CLA and OIT, in the spring semester. This committee maintains inventory and reviews department plans for upgrades and new facilities.
Proposal submission is open from Monday, January 5 to Wednesday, March 4, 2015 with winners announced in May. Questions and emails of interest can be directed to Christopher Stordalen at email@example.com. Once the email of interest is received, you may contact your department's relationship manager for assistance in completing the plan documentation.
