Request for Proposals to Develop Core Curriculum Courses Enhanced with Technology

The Core Curriculum Technology Enhancement Grant Committee requests proposals to develop or revise high-quality, high-enrollment core curriculum courses which use technology to achieve Texas A&M University's undergraduate learning outcomes as stated in the Office of the Provost's Student Learning Outcomes. Five awards of up to $75,000 each are made to Principal Investigators for course development activities.

The grant program directly aligns with the Office of the Provost's Pedagogy Project by supporting the development of course materials that are pedagogically sound, encourage student motivation, and increase student retention. New versions of the courses may be technology mediated, blended/hybrid, or fully online and may be distance education courses.

Proposals are due to Instructional Technology Services (Mail Stop 3002, 004 Heldenfels Hall) by close of business Thursday, December 1, 2016. The committee plans to announce grant awards prior to the start of the spring semester.

Note: Only courses offered at the College Station campus are eligible for the grant program.
