 Teaching Innovation Award

Applications for the Teaching Innovation Award for the 2013-2014 academic year are now being accepted and are due by Friday, March 21, 2014. Click here for information on the application process: Teaching Innovation Award 2014.

This award recognizes the effort put forth by faculty who have redesigned their courses or introduced new courses, using new methods or innovative approaches to applying the research on learning to the practice of teaching. It is intended for courses taught in Fall 2012, Spring 2013, or Fall 2013. Examples of innovations include new learner-centered pedagogical practices and/or the incorporation of new technology into course design, with an emphasis on how these innovations improved or facilitated student learning.

The recipients of the award receive $1,000. The award is not a reimbursement grant, but rather a monetary prize to recognize faculty achievement. The call for applications for this award goes out early Spring semester. All faculty teaching on the Reynolda Campus are invited to apply.

Faculty Funding Opportunities

The Teaching Development Fund

The Teaching Development Fund offers financial support of up to $1,500 per academic year to assist faculty in enhancing their teaching skills or in developing innovative teaching projects. The Fund may be used to attend teaching-related workshops and conferences, or to purchase materials that will benefit teaching and improve student learning in their classes. Requests should clearly delineate how the project will enhance teaching and learning, and have a clearly laid-out budget. The Fund will not be awarded if the proposal focuses primarily on the research, writing, and artistic activities of faculty members. The Fund will not pay for books, student labor, student field trips or guest speakers. For these requests visit the provost’s office funding opportunities here.
