Faculty Teaching Development Grants

Call for Applications

In order to support the enhancement of teaching and learning at Concordia University, the Provost and Vice-Rector, Research, is making funds available to be awarded this year as Faculty Teaching Development Grants.

* Types of Activities

Grants to individuals will be considered, but priority will be given to team projects that focus on programs for the enhancement of teaching and learning. Funds will not be granted for the purchase of supplies, computer hardware, or printing associated with the normal responsibilities of a department unit.

* Eligibility

Full-time faculty members and librarians are eligible to apply. The principal investigator must be either a full-time faculty member, tenured or in a tenure-track position; a grandparented Limited Term or Extended Term Appointment; or a librarian. However, other team members may be part-time faculty or Limited Term Appointments on longer than one-year contracts.

All previous grant recipients must submit a final (or interim) report on their project with their application in order to be eligible to apply this year.

* Deadline

The Centre for Teaching and Learning Services must receive applications by 4 p.m. on Monday, March 22, 1999.

* Review Process

A special selection committee approved by the Provost and Vice-Rector, Research, will review all completed applications received by the deadline. Decisions are expected to be announced in May 1999.

A list of previous grant recipients and projects, together with copies of successful grant applications are available for consultation at the Centre for Teaching and Learning Services. For further information, contact the Centre for Teaching and Learning Services at 848-2495 or e-mail
