The Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence (CAFE) announces faculty grant recipients for its two main grant programs: the educational research mini-grant program and the Provost’s eFellows grant program.
The educational research mini-grant program, which began in 2011, promotes the scholarship of teaching and learning through funding projects that systematically examine pedagogical practices. The program is designed to help instructors tackle a teaching and learning issue in which a specific, measurable research question is examined to bring about improved student learning, retention or academic success for all students.
Grants total $10,440 for three educational research projects. Grant projects and recipients are:
“Trying to Get It Right: Assessing the Impact of Formal Ethics Education on Undergraduate Engineering Students’ Understanding of Moral Issues”
“Three-minute Economic Shorts: Peer Teaching of Introductory Economic Concepts through Student Created Videos”
“Impact of Coordinated Community Partnerships and Interdisciplinary Curriculum using Experiential Learning”
The Provost’s eFellows grant program, which began in 2010, was established to improve the learning environment while preserving and maximizing the physical learning facilities available for instruction. CAFE instructional designers provide support to develop the courses using best practices for eLearning.
