Information Technology Services (ITS) offers grants in partnership with the IT and Library Committee faculty committee and the Center for Integrated Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship (CITLS) to encourage and financially support full-time faculty members interested in exploring new pedagogical strategies augmented by technology to help improve their teaching.
Applicants may request up to $5,000 to help fund their proposals, which could include any of the following:
Proposed projects should be able to be completed within one or two semesters since projects are intended to be relatively small in scale. Additionally, successful applicants will be paired with an instructional technologist to provide consultation and training as needed.
Proposals for 2017-18 were accepted through Sunday, April 23, 2017 and were reviewed by the ITaL faculty committee. Successful applicants were contacted in late May.
Selected applicants will have their funding made available to them after July 1, 2017. All technology purchases will require approval from Information Technology Services to ensure the infrastructure and staff at Lafayette is positioned to support the selected proposal.
Additionally, successful applicants will be asked to share their projects at a CITLS luncheon the academic year following the year awarded.
