Learning Innovation Mini Grants


Apply Here

The Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) will be  accepting applications for Learning Innovation Mini-Grants on September 15th

We define “Learning Innovation” as “fresh, creative thinking that alters individual and institutional systems and practices to improve learning.” The primary purpose of these mini-grants is to encourage faculty and staff members to improve student learning using core teaching methods described in the 2020-2025 strategic plan. (i.e. Active Learning, Applied Learning, Authentic Learning, Inclusive Learning, and Student-Centered). And to seed projects to promote/integrate open education in courses and programs in alignment with the strategic plan. Proposals emphasizing the creation and usage of open educational practices and resources will be favored.

CTL will award funds up to $5,000 per mini-  grant (total funds available for these mini-grants  are $20,000) for innovations to be implemented during the Spring 2023 semester. Mini-grants will be awarded to proposals that will directly impact student learning and could potentially provide a template for scaling the innovation to other contexts at UT.Applications Open September 15th and close November 1st
