Grant Opportunities for 2024
Pedagogic Intervention grants support instructors in exploring learning experiences that promote more experiential, interdisciplinary, or active approaches, whether teaching face-to-face, hybrid, or online courses. Funded activities might include workshops or lectures for students, or other special events involving external guests. Funds may compensate individuals, including students, for their time; may be used to pay for materials, for guest presenters/speakers, or for the costs of fieldwork. These grants do not normally cover off-the-shelf software or equipment, or travel to conferences unless that travel is part of project dissemination. $1,000 maximum.
Incubation Fund grants support any teaching activity designed with a view toward creating Scholarship of Teaching and Learning publications, conference presentations, or an external pedagogy-related grant application. Instructors might use these funds to explore a proof-of-concept project or engage in research that adds to knowledge in the field of pedagogy. Funds may support individuals, including students, for their time; for materials; for guest presenters/speakers; or for fieldwork. These grants do not normally cover off-the-shelf software or equipment. Maximum award: $1000.
Student-faculty collaboration grants support the creation of inclusive, innovative, and/or interdisciplinary pedagogy and course design. Grants must collaboratively engage students and faculty and should clearly outline how students will be involved in the co-creation of the grant’s execution. Instructors are encouraged to distribute this particular call to students, both undergraduate and graduate, in their departments, schools, and colleges. Funds may support individuals, including students, for their time; for materials; for guest presenters/speakers; or for fieldwork. These grants do not normally cover off-the-shelf software or equipment. Maximum award: $1000.
The Center for Transformative Teaching is committed to student success through inclusive, innovative, research-informed teaching. In alignment with the N2025 strategy, the CTT offers grant programs to support University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty in creating transformative learning experiences that engage students in co-creating knowledge, increasing interdisciplinary inquiry, demonstrating achievement, and preparing for their futures.
- As appropriate, resources developed or discovered during the project will be shared with the CTT for its repository of teaching and learning materials.
- Recipients will be required to submit a brief summary following the project’s completion focusing on outcomes and lessons learned and may be invited to share at CTT workshops and symposia.
