Teaching Innovation Program Grant

Focus: Online and Hybrid Courses

The Teaching Innovation Program (TIP) grant is an award opportunity for departments to develop and implement a plan for new and innovative approaches to teaching in the online and hybrid environments.  The Provost and Office of Academic Affairs is committed to providing resources and support to departments and faculty who can present a collaborative and innovative plan for accomplishing the TIP program objectives. 

The following focus on proposal topics is encouraged:

  • To increase student success in learning course material through the integration of new educational technologies
  • To increase student ability to use/apply course material through interactive digital tools and media
  • To develop curriculum to help students become innovative and self-directed learners in a hybrid or online environment

Proposals will be reviewed for the following:

  • Potential to enhance student performance
  • Number of students to benefit from the project
  • Sustainability and scalability (continuation and replication in future semesters) with a specific departmental plan for maintaining the innovation after the TIP support has expired
  • Innovation of the project
  • Realistic budget and timeline
  • Assessment plan
Our office will consider proposals up to $10,000, with awards based upon merit and funding availability. Awards will be announced by October 1, 2019.
