There is still time to apply for the 2018-19 round of Ignite Grants for Faculty Innovation in Teaching and Learning, as proposals are due on January 18, 2019.
Ignite Grants, which range up to $5,000, are designed to encourage faculty to explore new ideas that have the potential to reshape the classroom experience and to create new opportunities to tie curriculum to real-world experiences in both undergraduate and graduate programs. Ideas that engage students as collaborators in project development and implementation phases are especially encouraged. Proposals should complement Vision 2020 and support individual school strategies and priorities. Ideas are encouraged from all corners of campus.
Any current, full-time faculty who have the support of their associate dean or department chair may apply. Faculty are encouraged to collaborate with students, staff, departmental and cross-campus faculty colleagues, and co-curricular centers to create teams that will enhance learning and project impact. Additional team members do not have to be full-time.
