Center for Teaching and Learning Mini-Grants
Title III Mini-Grant Policies
Mini-grants for summer or vacation salary compensation will be available for faculty members to dedicate time to revise course offerings and design new pedagogy. All mini-grants must be reasonable and necessary to move the college toward achieving the goals and objectives of this program. To secure a mini-grant, the Mini-Grant Proposal Form must be submitted to the Teaching and Learning Center Coordinator 30 days prior to the proposed activity. The proposal form should be accompanied by evidence from Course Evaluations and Course Assessment demonstrating that course development could positively impact student learning and engagement. Each proposal will be reviewed by a committee, who will render final funding decisions. The following factors will be considered in funding decisions:
1) Potential to impact student learning and engagement
2) Potential to reach a large number of students
3) Potential to develop teaching strategies and new methods of delivery
4) Potential for collaboration and communication between faculty members
Upon completion of the mini-grant, faculty members must submit a Mini-Grant Report Form. Faculty members will also be required to submit a short Mini-Grant Impact Report Form detailing the impact the mini-grant had on student learning and engagement in the classroom, as evidenced by Course Evaluations, Course Assessment, and updated course syllabus, within 30 days following the completion of the semester in which the updated course was taught.
