Teaching Innovation Grants for Integrative Learning
Proposals due Wednesday, April 1, 2015
Many of us can think of activities we would have our students participate in outside of class, but how can we leverage those activities to maximize their learning benefit? The office of USC Connect and the Center for Teaching Excellence invite full-time faculty and instructors to submit proposals to develop, implement, and assess instructional materials that integrate beyond and within the classroom experiences to achieve course learning outcomes.
This grant program will enable faculty to explore teaching methods and assignments that give students opportunities to reflect on, apply, and synthesize what they learn from multiple experiences and activities. Grants of up to $3,500 will be awarded to support the incorporation of these types of integrative learning activities into courses that do not already include them, or to improve already existing integrative learning strategies.
Please see the Request for Proposals for more details.
Flipped Classroom Development Grants
Proposals due Friday, April 17, 2015
Are you a faculty member interested in the "flipped learning" classroom model that has received so much recent media attention? Are you interested in exploring whether this approach can help improve student engagement and learning in the courses you teach? The Center for Teaching Excellence, with support from the Office of the Provost, invites full-time faculty members to submit proposals for a new grant program to support the development of exemplary courses that employ a flipped learning format.
Grants of up to $5,000 will be available for single courses and of up to $7,500 for large multi-section courses or a sequence of at least two courses.
Contact Christy Friend at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Digital Humanities Course Development Stipends
Proposals due Saturday, May 30, 2015
Are you a humanities faculty member who would like to expand your students' learning by transforming one of your existing courses into a digital humanities course? The Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) and the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) invite full-time faculty and instructors to apply for a $1,000 stipend to transform an existing USC humanities course into a Digital Humanities course. In addition to the stipend, grantees will receive training and technical support during the course development period, helping you to make the best use of the technology and the tools available.
The course must already be approved and have been taught at least once in its present form. Please see the Request for Proposals for more details.
