The Caltech Innovation in Education Fund
|July 6, 2020|| We are pleased to announce the next round of funding from Caltech's Innovation in Education Fund. The Innovation in Education Fund is designed to support faculty developing new courses, implementing innovative and evidence-based teaching methods, upgrading educational facilities, or pursuing other new academic activities. The Fund is not designed to sustain ongoing programs. Innovation in Education projects may improve undergraduate and/or graduate instruction; the Provost's office encourages new proposals that will have an impact on the undergraduate curriculum, teaching, and learning--in the Core Curriculum and otherwise. In addition, proposals related to sustainability are especially welcome, with sustainability in Caltech education broadly construed to include courses, modules, experiments, cases, or other innovations that allow students to engage with challenges and opportunities associated with climate change and the stewardship of natural resources.
Proposals for smaller projects (under $5,000) will be accepted and funded on a rolling basis. Proposals for larger projects for the 2020-2021 academic year should be submitted by Monday, July 6, 2020 for consideration by the fall term.
In your proposals, please include a brief description of the proposed activity, anticipated outcomes for students, and a budget. The proposals should be submitted to [email protected], with a copy to [email protected] and the appropriate division chair.
CTLO staff are also available to consult on your proposals before submission: please contact [email protected] to inquire about designing projects to address your teaching objectives, integrating innovative methods in your classes, and other questions you may have.
