Teaching Innovations Grants support the development of innovative approaches to teaching designed to improve or enhance student learning. Without attempting to define “innovation” for all domains of knowledge, CTLT seeks innovative approaches to teaching and learning that are embedded in a particular context, contain elements of calculated risk (in that the approaches are not currently widely accepted practice in a given discipline or on our campus), and are designed to affect student learning in positive ways. Awards are up to $2,000 for individual applicants or $2,500 per team. Deadlines in Fall, Spring and Summer.
Global Engagement Learning Grants support the incorporation of Educating Illinois Goal Two into students’ curricular experiences. Grants reimburse faculty for expenses directly associated with course-based events, activities, or projects that “prepare students to excel in a globally competitive, culturally diverse, and changing environment.” This grant is co-sponsored by Office of International Studies and Programs and CTLT. Awards are up to $500. Deadlines in Fall, Spring, and Summer.
Community Engagement Learning Grants support the incorporation of ISU’s core value of civic engagement into students’ curricular experiences. Grants reimburse faculty for expenses directly associated with course-based events, activities, or projects that develop students’ civic and community knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors and prepare them to participate in social change. This grant is co-sponsored by the Civic Engagement and Responsibility Minor, the American Democracy Project at ISU, and CTLT. Awards are up to $500. No deadlines—applications accepted any time before the work commences.
