This collaborative project will be implemented in Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 and supports Strategic Plan 2027 by engaging students in experiential learning and knowledge production in the context of the city of Austin. Education and UX design students will create virtual reality (VR) tours of locations in Austin. To read the full abstract, please visit the 2022 TLTR Pilot Projects webpage.
Please note that there will be a second 2022 deadline for project proposals in the Fall, and we will announce any newly approved projects at that time.
The Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable (TLTR) invites proposals for the Technology for Innovative Learning & Teaching Pilot Project Grants (aka TLTR Pilot Project Grants) for projects anytime in 2022 (Spring, Summer, Fall) or Spring 2023. The Office of Information Technology (OIT) sets aside $20,000 on an annual basis to fund innovative teaching projects that incorporate new technologies and can be used as a model for other faculty, and the TLTR uses this fund to award grants up to $5,000. The TLTR especially encourages projects that support digital transformation at the university and the development of digital skills by students, faculty, and staff. We also encourage projects that align with our strategic plan or the areas of focus of the innovation fellowship:
- Experiential and/or Austin-based pedagogy
- Inclusive and Antiracist Teaching (includes Open Educational Resources and Universal Design for Learning/Accessibility)
- Online Course Design or Revision
- Statement of Interest Due: 2022 deadline extended to March 25
- Final Application Due: 2022 deadline extended to April 8
