Congratulations to 2020-2021 TLTR Pilot Grant Recipients

Technology for Innovative Learning & Teaching Pilot Project Grants for 2020-2021 Academic Year

Visible Body Anatomy Atlas

Visible Body Anatomy Atlas

The Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable (TLTR) congratulates the winners of Technology for Innovative Learning & Teaching Pilot Project Grants for 2020. (The projects are commonly referred to as TLTR Pilots.)  Projects have been or will be implemented in Summer or Fall 2020 or Spring 2021. In response to the conditions of teaching during the Pandemic, this year’s grants include projects that support online teaching and learning or socially-distanced teaching and learning.  Projects especially explore ways to use digital tools as an alternative experiential learning experience, such as the Visible Body courseware used to study anatomy seen at the right, or virtual reality simulations. Others explore the use of video to support teaching improvement, software for modeling complex dynamical systems, and methods for adapting online textbooks to local contexts, which will provide lessons for instructors making use of free digital textbooks and other open educational resources (OERs). This announcement combines the results of two CFPs, one in Spring 2020 and one in Fall 2020.  The winning projects for 2020 are:

  • New Ventures in Professional Development: Teacher Circles, Steven Fletcher, Associate Professor, Teaching, Learning, and Culture
  • VR in the Classroom – Online Teaching and Learning Strategies with Digital Immersion, Steven Fletcher, Associate Professor, Teaching, Learning, and Culture
  • Using STELLA to Model the Earth’s Climate, Gary A. Morris, Professor, Environmental Science and Physics
  • Improving Anatomy and Physiology studies using 3-D Models and Augmented Reality, LaKisha Barrett, Visiting Assistant Professor/Adjunct Biology, Biological Sciences
  • An Accessible Textbook Students Want to Access, Emma Woelk, Assistant Professor of German, Languages, Literatures and Cultures

To read abstracts for each project, please visit the 2020 TLTR Pilot Projects webpage.

TLTR Pilots: Interest Due 10/30 & Proposals Due 11/20

The Teaching, Learning, and Technology Roundtable (TLTR) invites proposals for the Technology for Innovative Learning & Teaching Pilot Project Grants (TLTR Pilot Project Grants) for projects in Spring 2021. The TLTR will be awarding grants worth up to $5,000 to fund innovative teaching projects that incorporate new technologies and can be used as a model for other faculty. The TLTR especially encourages projects to help the university adapt to teachiFall 2020 TLTR Pilot Deadlinesng and learning during the Pandemic. This call specifically seeks proposals to support online teaching and learning or socially-distanced teaching and learning.

This program is a great chance for faculty members to get a license for some new instructional technology tool or purchase equipment to support online instruction. You might even coordinate with a group of faculty to try something new. Statements of interest due 10/30/20 & applications due 11/20/20.
