The Teaching Technology Center is now offering a Mini-Grant for MICA faculty interested in improving teaching and learning through innovative technologies.
If you are looking for new ways to test out technology in your teaching, you may be eligible for a $250 to $500 grant to support a project. The larger grant can support faculty who partner with a student to complete a project.
Please apply if you think your project:
advances the course or departmental curriculum through creative use of technology and/or innovative teaching practices, processes, assignments, or presentations, and/or
strives to create engaging student learning experiences by promoting 21st-century learning practices.
See this link for the application. For more detailed information about the grant and example project ideas, click here. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
