The Faculty 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 enhance your teaching skills.
Requests should delineate how the project will enhance teaching and learning, and have a clearly laid-out budget. Recipients are also expected to provide a short report at the end of the development opportunity detailing how the experience has (or is expected to) enhanced teaching and learning in their course.
The Fund will not be awarded if the proposal focuses primarily on the research, writing, and artistic activities of faculty members. The Fund is also not intended for books related to course content, student labor, student field trips or guest speakers. For these requests, review the Provost’s Office funding opportunities here.
Requests may be submitted for the current academic year by email to Betsy Barre at barreea
Reimbursement requests should be completed in Workday, and all receipts are required for reimbursement.
Reimbursement requests should be submitted within 30 days of return from travel, or 60 days from incurring expense, per University mandate, and received by the TLC no later than June 1 for approval by the TLC Director.
