This year’s themes include:

  • 3-D printing and makerspaces University makerspaces, including the new Blue Print 3D Studio, provide opportunities for faculty members to develop innovative student projects and assessments designed in sound pedagogical strategies. 
  • Inclusive teaching practices Promote diversity by integrating teaching practices that account for cultural and/or learning differences.
  • General education – Implement or advance the new General Education purposes and objectives with a particular preference given to proposals that include the development of a new sustainable interdisciplinary capstone experience. 
  • Problem-based learning – Integrate active learning in all forms (problem-based, project-based, design-based, studio-based, team-based) to increase instructional impact.
  • Other issues and themes – Faculty are welcome to submit proposals that advance teaching in other ways. 

More information about these themes is available at the Faculty Commons website under “criteria.”

Funding will be awarded on a competitive basis for proposals that best fit the goals and criteria for transforming teaching and learning through the innovative use of technology. Successful proposals will test and assess instructional techniques and technologies that have the potential to establish new practices and resources on campus and beyond.

This year’s grant program combines resources from the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning, the Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education, and IT Academic Technology Services to accommodate funding requests for faculty time, graduate or undergraduate student time, software and equipment.

Interested faculty can contact Faculty Commons, faculty-commons@udel.edu, to discuss their proposal idea.
