Grants for Experimentation in Teaching

Grants for Experimentation in Teaching

New Grants for Experimentation in Teaching (GET) program are now available.

Grants will support the prototyping and trial of small- to medium-sized changes in teaching approaches and the collection of data to see how those experiences affected relevant outcomes. Proposals are welcome in two categories:

Course design improvement. Some examples are the addition of a course-long project, regular use of feedback practices like reading quizzes, or adoption of a flipped classroom approach. Examples of how these could be assessed include grade comparisons, short end- or beginning-of class student feedback, student focus groups, or concept tests.

Assignment design improvement. Examples include team contracts for a group project or introducing phases into the writing of a paper or project (as scaffolding for student learning). Examples of how these could be assessed are the same as for course design.

Call for Proposals: 2017 grant information TBD.

We invite imagination … Experiments can be big or small.

Final proposals should be emailed to Patricia Dinneen, UTLC Director, pdinneen@gwu.edu.
