Teaching-with-Technology Grants

 

Call for Proposals

Deadline for SPRING 2019: NOVEMBER 16, 2018 

Program Description

As part of NYU Gallatin’s initiative to support the most innovative and effective teaching and learning practices by our faculty, we will continue to offer a small number of Teaching-with-Technology Grants. We seek to support new course designs and projects that integrate technology in a pedagogically purposeful way. Effective proposals will have a well-defined plan for addressing a specific need or set of learning outcomes within Gallatin. Successful proposals will furthermore be able to articulate how their projects require services beyond the scope of those offered by NYU. Projects might include course adaptation for hybrid delivery, including web-enhanced assignments; materials-based course projects, including 3D printing and robotics; pedagogical applications of emerging audio/video/touch technologies or advanced imaging and modeling software; experimentation with the flipped class model; piloting new pedagogical approaches; and more. Preference will be given to those projects that demonstrate scalability: Will you be teaching this course again? Will your course project serve as a model for other faculty? Do you see your project expanding in scope, and will you be seeking additional funding?

Projects supported by the Teaching-with-Technology Grants will be developed under the leadership of the proposing party, but will benefit from the support of Gallatin’s Educational Technology team. If you have an idea for a course or project that you’re not sure is a good fit for this grant, please contact Jenny Kijowski at jenny.kijowski@nyu.edu. She would be happy to talk with you further about your ideas.

All grant recipients will participate in an annual symposium, and are strongly encouraged to pursue publication opportunities. Videos of past symposia can be viewed below.

Application Procedure

All applications must be emailed to Jenny Kijowski as a single PDF at jenny.kijowski@nyu.edu. Applications are due on November 16, 2018 at 5pm. Awards will be announced by end of December.

Each application PDF must include:

  1. Project Title
  2. Primary contact name and email address
  3. Additional team member names and email addresses, if applicable
  4. Project narrative (max 500 words) that explains your goals and how support from a Teaching-with-Technology Grant would benefit the project. Please be specific about how this funding will make the project possible, how specific learning goals will be achieved, and how your project might be expanded in the future.  
  5. Proposed timeline, including your projected deliverables.
  6. Project assessment plan.
  7. Simple budget, outlining anticipated needs, such as software, hardware, training, support from someone with specific technical skills, etc. (*Note: If your budget includes personnel costs, please be advised that NYU labor incurs a 30% fringe benefits charge that is applied to all salaries paid through payroll. You must build this charge into your budget. This is not an issue for non-NYU labor.)
  8. Statement of any prior and/or ongoing funding (if applicable)
  9. Primary’s CV, including the URLs for past digital learning projects that the primary contact has participated in, if any (not a requirement for funding).

If you have questions, please contact Gallatin’s Educational Technologist, Jenny Kijowski, at jenny.kijowski@nyu.edu.
