Provost Releases Spring 2015 Hybrid Learning RFP

Home > News & Updates > Provost Releases Spring 2015 Hybrid Learning RFP

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 and 2016. Full-time and part-time faculty from both campuses are eligible to apply.

This is the second RFP that invites professors to submit proposals using technology-enabled learning methods as well as exploring the option of the “flipped classroom.” 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. Please send any questions, or consultation requests 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, March 6, 2015 at 11AM in Butler Library room 203.

Faculty proposals are due Monday, April 6, 2015 at 5:00PM. Selections will be made by Wednesday, April 22, 2015.

Faculty submitting a proposal must complete the proposal application form at bit.ly/rfp-sp2015.
