Provost's Immersive Learning Grants: November 1

Provost's Immersive Learning Grant guidelines are below. Please note that the procedures and the funding periods have changed from past calls. Proposals for any and all of Spring, Summer, and Fall 2011 will be reviewed in November, proposals for AY 2011-2012 will be reviewed in March 2011. Complete application information is available from the provost's office.

Preference will be given to projects that meet all or most of the characteristics of immersive learning.

While preference will be given to new proposals and activities, successful projects previously funded by the Provost’s Immersive Learning Grant may apply for funds where need exists and unduplicated students will be served. Faculty members are encouraged to consider how their existing courses may be made more immersive.

Preference will be given to projects that can become self-sustaining. If the project is requesting equipment, please address why new equipment is needed and how it will be maintained. Equipment purchased specifically for immersive learning projects will be turned back to the Provost’s Office if the project is not sustained.

Interdisciplinary proposals involving multiple departments and colleges are encouraged. Proposals should address how students will be recruited and how credit will be assigned.

Preference will be given to projects that work with one or more community partners. Letters of support from said partners should be attached to the proposal. Projects involving international travel should provide a signature of support from Dr. Kenneth Holland, Dean Rinker Center for International Programs.

Projects should involve primarily undergraduate students.

All full-time faculty (tenured, tenure-track, and contract) are eligible to apply. Professional Personnel in collaboration with faculty are also eligible.

Proposals must be signed by appropriate chairs and deans and sent to the Office of the Provost by 5:00 p.m., November 1, 2010.

The proposal is limited to 6 pages, not including the cover memo, letters of community support, or letter of chair support.

Faculty receiving funds are expected to provide a mid-grant report and provide a public presentation of the project upon its completion. Faculty will be asked to provide assessment data at the conclusion of the project. Faculty members who are funded will be asked to use an experimental evaluation form for assessment purposes.
