Additional Teaching Innovation and Information Literacy Grants

March 26, 2018

Dear Colleagues,

In addition to the recent call for proposals to the Provost Teaching Innovation awards, I am pleased to announce two additional funding opportunities for faculty interested in developing courses for the new General Education requirements. Brandeis Teaching Innovation Grants and Information Literacy Grants are intended to promote excellence and innovation in teaching through the development of new instructional methods or materials, methods of assessing learning, or course design. A successful proposal describes a project that is related to the new General Education requirements, is innovative, and includes an evaluation method to assess the impact of the innovation(s).

Applications for the upcoming academic year (2018-19) will be due by Friday, April 20, 2018. Funds will be released on July 1, 2018 and must be spent by June 15, 2019. For more information on the requirements of both grants, please click here. The application for the Gen Ed Teaching Innovation Grant can be found here. The application for the Library
Information Literacy Grant can be found here.

I am very pleased to be able to support Brandeis faculty members through these programs and look forward to seeing the
impact of this work on our new General Education requirements.

Best regards,

Lisa M. Lynch
