Immersive Learning Program: January 30

Immersive learning, the heart of a Ball State education, melds content, skills, societal need, and your interests into an intense, transformative experience. Immersive learning pulls together interdisciplinary student teams that solve problems for community partners. The result is a final product that enhances the community with a lasting impact. Students have created business plans, Web sites, documentaries, content and applications for emerging media, publications, and much more.

In order to enhance your unit’s immersive learning opportunities, the Immersive Learning Advisory Committee has created new procedures that they hope will allow for increased funding.
  1. Grants for New Projects: The application procedure remains the same as other calls. Proposals are due to the Office of the Provost by 5:00 p.m. January 30, 2012.
  2. Grants for Previously Funded or Continuing Projects: Focuses on the success of a previously funded immersive learning project and how it has evolved. The client and/or the product may be different, but the applicant(s), nature of the project, and learning objectives are the same as a previously funded project. Proposals are due to the Provost's office by 5:00 p.m. January 30, 2012.
  3. Travel Grants: Travel that is a part of the project (either Item 1 or 2 above) should be included in the application. Faculty members who are presenting immersive learning research or projects at professional meetings may seek travel funding directly from the Office of the Provost. Requests for travel funding and the application procedure should be directed to Jackie Buckrop. Proof of invitation will be required. These funds are not limited to faculty members who have been previously funded by this initiative. All faculty members who are presenting immersive learning research or immersive projects are welcome to apply. 
If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact Jackie Buckrop.
