Want to attend a conference that focuses on innovative teaching strategies?
Need books to help with the development of a bold, new course that supports the central curriculum?
Want to hold a workshop where you and several colleagues can tackle classroom challenges that are specific to your discipline?
The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) provides grants of up to $500 to support faculty activities that foster curricular or pedagogical innovations that will enhance the learning of Susquehanna University students. Grant proposals may be submitted at any time (there is no deadline per se). The CTL director, together with the CTL Committee, reviews grant proposals in the order they are received—and awards grants based on the quality of the proposal and the availability of funding.
As specified in the grant application, recipients must agree to make a brief, on-campus presentation (usually part of a relaxed, informal lunch session) where he or she shares with faculty colleagues the lessons that were gleaned from the grant-supported experience. In this way, the knowledge gained by the grant recipient has the potential to influence other SU faculty members, thus invigorating teaching and learning across the campus at large.
To be considered for a grant, please complete the grant application and submit it to Dave Kaszuba, director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or campus mail to Apfelbaum Room 103.
