To keep the momentum going beyond the Third Century Initiative — which officially ends with U-M’s Bicentennial in 2017 — the university is offering Transforming Learning for the Third Century-Networks for Engaged Teaching funds of up to $1,000.
The funding is for projects that assemble groups of faculty, staff or students for regular discussions about engaged learning, or to plan next steps for a previously funded TLTC proposal.
In addition, in 2017, the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching and the Vice Provost for Global and Engaged Education will award Investigating Student Learning grants to individuals and teams that wish to examine the impact of educational practices that promote one or more engaged student learning outcomes.
ISL grants range from $6,000 for an individual faculty member to $8,000 for a team of faculty members and graduate students or postdoctoral fellows. Information about the TLTC-NET and ISL awards can be found on CRLT’s grants webpage.
The seminar also unveiled a new engaged learning website that houses an assessment toolkit, five new Occasional Papers on engaged learning goals, and examples of TLTC projects at U-M.
