Grant Summary

$107,000 over 36 months to prepare graduate students for teaching careers by creating knowledge of digital teaching methods and communication technologies that will be essential to the success of future faculty, along with an understanding of how people learn and hands on classroom experience. Grant funds will support graduate students' stipends, the salary for the coordinator of the Lead Teaching Fellows program, costs for the development of digital resources, dissemination, and some equipment. The Teaching Center has plans in place to continue funding of the "lead teaching fellows" and "teaching scholars" program, and is developing plans to increase its staffing and so help sustain the programming developed under the auspices of this grant.
