Instructional Technology Development Committee (ITDC) Innovation Grants
The FAQ Decision Guide provides information (from the perspective of the grant committees and their chairs) to complement the published criteria. Much of this information has been provided by the most recent (former and/or incoming) grant committee chairs.
The Instructional Technologies Development Committee (ITDC) makes funding recommendations to the Information Technology Division (ITD) for projects related to the exploration of technologies as well as the innovative and effective integration of those technologies into teaching and learning. Proposals must include an original and thorough description of the project, a statement of the objectives, a discussion of the potential project benefits to be derived by the faculty member(s), students, and the University, an itemized budget, and a total funding request.
Funding is to be awarded to applicants who adequately demonstrate that such funds will be used to make course instruction better and more effective in terms of meeting instructional objectives through the use of technology. Applicants should consult with a member of the ITD Faculty Instructional Technology Center staff prior to submitting a proposal (Call 1.615.904.8189 to make an appointment).
