Curricular Innovation Grants

In line with university goals and priorities Goal 3A: Transdisciplinary Scholarship and Curricular Innovation to encourage curricular innovation and experimentation as well as provide opportunities for interdisciplinary courses and programs to emerge, a new Curricular Innovation Grant Fund is being established to provide competitive grants for experimenting with innovative teaching methods such as transdisciplinary learning, virtual reality, digital learning, active learning, inclusive teaching practices, open education resources, or techniques introduced in the ACUE course on Effective Teaching Practices. This program is being piloted in 2023 as an initial step in a multiyear effort to further inspire and incentivize curricular innovation and experimentation.

Grant recipients receive a $5,000 stipend and up to $500 for materials, paid in June for summer development work and guidance from a CITL staff member to support the innovation. All full-time faculty, including tenured and tenure-track faculty, instructional faculty, and clinical faculty are eligible to submit applications.
