We are pleased to announce the call for proposals for Liberal Arts Instructional Technology Course Development and Lab Grants for the 2011-12 academic year. If you have a good idea for integrating technology with teaching, we encourage you to submit an online proposal.
As always, we will look for ideas that are innovative, impact large numbers of students, are cost-effective, and are pedagogically sound. Particular priority will be given this year to proposals that have potential for leveraging funding from federal, state, or foundation sources -- or from other internal sources such as LIFT or Course Transformation grants.
Proposals can be for any instructional use of technology. Faculty members may choose to develop technology themselves, perhaps with student assistants, or they may request professional assistance from Liberal Arts Instructional Technology Services (LAITS).
LAITS can provide technical assistance with:
- Website design and production, including back-end databases and programming
- Audio recording, editing, digitization, and compression for network delivery
- Video production, digitization, and preparation for network delivery
- Graphic art and design
- Image digitization
Funding may be requested for:
- Faculty salary support for one Summer 2012 session (up to 1/6th of 9-month salary)
- Up to one year of part-time wages for undergraduate or graduate assistants
- Project-specific computer hardware/software purchases and upgrades
