Faculty Teaching Group Grant proposals due Sept. 1

From: The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning's Faculty Teaching Group Grant program is designed for faculty members who would like to explore a topic related to higher education teaching and learning in a small and interactive learning community. The primary goals of this grant program are to encourage faculty members to form collaborative support networks within or outside of their home departments and colleges, and to encourage exploration and discovery related to teaching and learning in higher education.

Groups will receive a $2,000 grant toward their proposed goals. Approximately five grants will be funded each year.

The program supports the exploration of a range of topics related to teaching and learning. For example, recent Faculty Teaching Groups' topics have included 

  • supporting/mentoring early career university teachers,
  • creating cross-discipline experiences in study abroad,
  • developing learning experiences that incorporate multiple disciplines,
  • incorporating R programming and data analytics in the classroom,
  • exploring teaching and learning practices using telemedicine in clinical veterinary and medical education programs,
  • building an online community among students, and
  • creating a discipline-specific and university teaching-focused learning community with an emphasis on peer observation and reflection.

Proposals for this grant program should be submitted electronically with this Google Form on or before Sept. 1. Proposal evaluation criteria and example proposals are provided at
