Brandeis Faculty

Supporting Diversity in the Academy

The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce the the continuation of the Teaching Innovation Grant program for Brandeis faculty. Proposals in the following areas will receive special preference; however all proposals that address innovation in teaching or assessment will be considered.

  • Innovative ways of addressing issues of diversity and inclusion
  • Team teaching/interdisciplinary course design 

We expect to make approximately 15 grants for the 2016-17 year. Proposals must demonstrate innovation in teaching and/or student assessment.  A course is not innovative solely because it is new – it must include innovative pedagogy or assessment. Proposals may involve: 1) the creation or redesign of a course or 2) the creation of an assessment or teaching methodology that could be widely used. 

Complete guidelines are in the Teaching Innovation Grant Announcement (pdf)

Deadline extended to April 4, 2016.
