2019 University of Calgary Teaching and Learning Grants call for proposals
I am pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 University of Calgary Teaching and Learning Grants program. This program is designed to provide resources for integrating research evidence into teaching practice, generating new knowledge about teaching and learning at the University of Calgary, and supporting the dissemination of results to benefit others. Grant applications are due Oct. 29, 2018.
The Teaching and Learning Grants support the development, implementation, critical examination and dissemination of innovative, creative and evidence-based approaches to learning. We invite applications from academic staff and academic librarians, archivists and curators, and from teaching assistants, postdoctoral scholars, student service professionals and administrative staff. Some restrictions apply for primary grant holders.
These grants facilitate projects through three structural streams:
- Development and Innovation: This new grant stream will support teaching and learning projects to develop something new or innovate something already in place at the University of Calgary. The scope may vary from individual activities to entire programs, such as the creation of a new resource, the implementation of a new practice, or the (re)design of activities, courses, or programs. Development and Innovation Grants are one-year grants and can be individual or collaborative, and funding amounts can be up to $7,500.
- Lesson Study: These grants support team-based studies of a single lesson, carefully developed and studied to promote a significant learning goal. Lesson study grants are one- or two-year grants for teams of three to six members. Teams can receive funding up to $7,500 per year, to a maximum of $15,000 per year, for the entire team.
- Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: These projects are formal, evidence-based studies to better understand or improve student learning. They can be individual or collaborative and one or two years in duration. Individual projects can receive up to $10,000 per year, to a maximum of $20,000 for two years. Collaborative projects can receive up to $20,000 per year, to a maximum of $40,000 for two years.
Our students, faculty and staff demonstrate great dedication to our Eyes High strategy, our renewed Academic Plan and our commitment to enriching the quality and breadth of learning at the University of Calgary. This program is intended to support our colleagues in their continuing investigations in teaching and learning. Your efforts are genuinely appreciated and we look forward to receiving your submissions.
