"The Office of the Provost provides funding opportunities for faculty looking to integrate new educational methods and technologies into their classrooms and learning environments. Outlined below are the funding opportunities and request for proposals for such opportunities.

This request for proposals identifies innovative projects to design course modules, entire courses, or massive open online courses (MOOCs), and also supports teaching initiatives at the department, programs, or school level. Projects will be developed over the next academic year and proposals from all disciplines and subject areas are welcome. The deadline to submit proposals is Monday, April 20, 2020 at 5:00 P.M.

The goals of the teaching and learning grants are to measure the impact and effectiveness of these designs, pedagogies, and learning strategies, to improve teaching (both online and face to face), and to enhance the learning outcomes of Columbia University students from all disciplines.

Awardees will have access to the resources and support of the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) in course and project design, content development, training in new pedagogies, media production, assessment and evaluation, and project management. Recipients will be expected to spend awarded funds as proposed and to collaborate with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) staff.

A prior meeting and consultation with the CTL is strongly recommended to help develop the project plan and the appropriate in-kind support level. Please contact [email protected] to schedule a meeting.
