Provost's Office Announces Teaching and Learning Initiative for Faculty

Home > News & Updates > Provost's Office Announces Teaching and Learning Initiative for Faculty

The Office of the Provost has launched a new Request for Proposals (RFP) inviting faculty to apply for funding to support redesigning the delivery of their courses using innovative, technology-rich pedagogy and learning strategies. The awards to faculty will be grants of $5K-$20K accompanied by in-kind support from the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning for courses in 2015. Full-time and part-time faculty from both campuses are eligible to apply.

This new initiative blends extremely well with our #blendedlearning theme for this academic year. Faculty who have attended our Fall Premiere or rewirED program will likely recognize the similarities. Key goals of this initiative are to measure the effectiveness of these designs, delivery methods, and learning strategies, as well as to improve instructional delivery and learning outcomes of Columbia University students from all disciplines.

Our educational technologists will be helping faculty with their project plans, which will be reviewed by a faculty committee. Interested faculty should send an email to ccnmtl+rfp@columbia.edu. In addition, the Office of the Provost and CCNMTL will hold a town hall meeting to answer questions about the RFP on Friday, October 24, 2014 at 3PM in Butler Library room 203.

Faculty proposals are due Monday, November 10, 2014 at 5:00PM. Selections will be made by November 24, 2014.
