The University Teaching Council provides grants for support of teaching development that will enhance education at Kent State University. The awards may be individual or collaborative (within a department or between departments, colleges, campuses, or institutions). Teaching Development Grants (TDG) will support teaching related projects such as pedagogy and course, curriculum, and program development. The awards may also be used to fund materials required for program development.
The University Teaching Council will award Teaching Development Grants up to a maximum of $1,000.
The University Teaching Council supports and encourages faculty projects that investigate student learning across years, departments, and courses, as well as those that seek to communicate interdisciplinary knowledge and understanding.
Faculty members may request funds to pay students or technical help, to create audio-visual materials for software, and to purchase equipment required for pedagogical or program development.
All full-time and part-time faculty members at any of the eight Kent State University campuses are eligible for a Teaching Development Grant. Funds will be awarded to those activities which have a clear connection to the advancement of learning and educational excellence at Kent State University.
Grant recipients are expected to make a presentation at the annual College Teaching Conference in the fall.
