Opportunities

Innovation Fellowship

The Office of Academic Affairs, the Center for Teaching Excellence, the Munday Library, and the Department of Instructional Technology of St. Edward’s University invites proposals from faculty for the 2014 Innovation Fellowship.  In the Fall 2013 survey on Academic Innovation, the most desired educational approach selected was pedagogical risk taking and experimentation.  This fellowship will support faculty who need time, resources, and expertise to include pedagogical experimentation in their courses. Visit the Innovation Fellowship site for information on the proposal process.

Technology for Innovative Learning & Teaching Pilot Project Grants

The Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable (TLTR) and Instructional Technology are pleased to announce that we will be offering small grants again this year for faculty who wish to pursue innovative and technologically-sophisticated teaching. Grants of up to $5000 are available to fund projects that improve student learning in a course and will serve the larger St. Edward’s learning community. Funds will be awarded competitively by the TLTR for use in the summer 2014, fall 2014, or spring 2015 semesters.   Visit the TLTR Pilot Projects site for more information.
