The 2014 IEG program will fund projects that promote excellence in instruction and assessment. Funding for this program comes from the Vice Provost's Office and Library special funds.
Program Objectives: The Instructional Enhancement Grants program exists to provide grants from a few hundred to $5,000 for activities that will enhance the instructional mission of the university. Projects may include traditional classroom-based modes of instruction as well as other modes such as tutoring, peer-led instruction, electronic distance education, directing graduate students, and advising. Projects may include development or acquisition of instructional materials, the introduction of new teaching techniques, instructional research, outreach, or assessment.
Eligibility: All faculty on continuing appointments of >0.5 FTE are eligible to apply.
Application: A description of the proposed project including a budget must be submitted to the Provost's Office (attention Alissa Mortensen, firstname.lastname@example.org) by 5 p.m. on March 14, 2014.
Proposals must include:
We encourage matching resources from other entities; this evidence of support and sustainability will strengthen the proposal.
Restrictions: The IEG program does not fund faculty stipends. Consumable supplies are the responsibility of the department and will not be funded. Salaries for undergraduate graders or graduate research assistants are funded, if well justified.
Reporting Requirement: A brief report describing project outcomes is expected within one month of project completion.
IEG Committee: The Instructional Enhancement Grants Committee will review all proposals to determine funding. This committee includes faculty representatives, many of whom have been recipients of Instructional Enhancement Grants in previous years.
