Innovative Pedagogy Grant Program
The Innovative Pedagogy Grant Program is a unique program that offers faculty and staff the opportunity to learn how to skillfully intertwine technology into a face-to-face, online, or hybrid course. The program is open to all faculty and staff who teach 100- or 200-level courses.
Fifteen awards of $10,000 each may be made to Principal Investigators for course development activities. The 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.
Proposals are due to Instructional Technology Services (Mail Stop 3002, 004 Heldenfels Hall) by close of business Friday, December 2, 2016. Notifications of acceptance and additional details will be provided prior to the start of the spring semester.
Note: Only faculty and staff located at the College Station campus and who teach 100- or 200-level courses are eligible for the grant program.
