Apply for grants to fit teaching innovations

Emory Report | April 10, 2014

Faculty can take advantage of funds for their innovative undergraduate and/or graduate, and postgraduate teaching projects and programs.

Applications are due by Monday, April 28, for Fund for Innovative Teaching (FIT) grants, which will range from $500-$3,000.

FIT Grants are open to all full time faculty, tenure and non-tenure track, and are available for both individual faculty members and faculty working as teams. 

Priority will be given to those whose proposals promise long-term educational effects within the Emory community. Only one proposal per project will be considered.

Funds will support a variety of new approaches, including:

  • courses that support recent discoveries in research and take that research into the classroom;
  • new interdisciplinary courses that move across departments or across schools; and
  • courses that use creative pedagogical approaches, such as developing a student exhibit using materials in special collections; developing virtual "rounds" in a hospital, or flipping a classroom.

The two-to-three page application, emailed to Donna Troka, should include the proposed innovation, course outline or proposed syllabus, budget, and schedule for integration of the proposed project in the classroom setting.

Email Troka for more information.
