The First Friday Roundtable series at the University of Delaware continues on March 3 with “Teaching & Learning Grants @ UD,” a program highlighting many of the teaching and learning grants that are available to UD faculty. From 3:30-5 p.m. in 208 Gore Hall UD faculty and staff will briefly introduce grant programs focused on improving teaching and learning. Following the introductions, they will answer questions from faculty who are interested in potentially applying.
Among the units and grants that will be represented are:
- Center for Science, Ethics and Public Policy: Integrative Curriculum Development Grants
- Center for Study of Diversity: Diversity Research Grant Program
- Center for Teaching & Assessment of Learning: Travel grants, instructional improvement grants
- (TBD) Community Engagement Initiative: Faculty mini-grants
- Provost’s office: Provost’s Initiative for Excellence in Innovation in E-Learning
- UD Library: Special Collections and Museums grants
- Research Office: General University Research Program
Although not all grant programs will have active requests for proposals at the time of the roundtable, participants will be able to understand some of the sources of funds that are commonly available for improving teaching and learning.
Those who plan to attend are asked to register.
