Fundable projects could include:
- the development of new teaching methodologies for use in a current course or subject area, such as online lectures, webinars, podcasts, multi-media learning tools, supplementary learning tools and/or other emerging technology-based processes;
- the development and deployment of innovative teaching practices that promote student-centered learning experiences in the classroom, such as interactive games and other experiential learning modalities; and
- the design and construction of a new course, which augments the learning outcomes of an existing or forthcoming academic program in a compelling and timely manner.
Funding will be provided for truly innovative projects designed to significantly enhance teaching and learning experiences in the classroom at Schulich. These initiatives must go beyond normal course, instructor or curricular development in updating lecture content, course outlines, guest speaker line-ups and the like. Please see “Expense Eligibility” for further clarification.
Funding Maximums: Determined on an application-by-application basis, up to a maximum amount of $5,000 per project.
Funding Duration: Project funds will be made available on a short-term, start-up basis only (i.e., to develop, launch and implement a given project). Once the initial project implementation has been concluded, no additional funding will be made available for that project on an ongoing basis.
Call for Applications: Participation in Teaching & Learning Innovation Fund initiatives is strongly encouraged, and interested applicants are welcome to contact the SCTE with any questions or concerns they may have about the nature and/or scope of a potential project that is under consideration.
