2014 Professional Development Awards for UT Foreign Language Instructors
The Texas Language Center is pleased to announce a call for proposals to develop teaching materials, syllabi, or curricula for language classes taught at the University. These mini-grants are specifically for practicing instructors—at any rank—of languages other than English. The recipients of these grants will be invited to present the results of their grant work to language-teaching faculty and students at one of the TLC's monthly Language Matters talks and/or in an article for the TLC newsletter. Preference will be given to projects that will have immediate measureable impact on students in UT language courses. Grant awards will range from $500 to $2000, depending on the scope of the proposed project.
Awards are available for use at any time during the period April 1 - August 31, 2014.
The program of awards aims to support language-teaching instructors and enhance teaching by supporting any of the following:
- Compensation for time spent creating new teaching materials or revising existing curricula and syllabi.
- The purchase of materials for classroom use to be integrated into new or existing curricula.
- Attendance at professional conferences or workshops that will directly address classroom teaching.
Use the submission form to submit your proposal. Proposals will be accepted through February 24, 2014.
