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