To support the effectiveness of using technology in teaching, learning and scholarship, the University sets aside dedicated funding each year to support faculty who are integrating innovative technology into their academic work.
The intent of the grant program is to:
- Develop new approaches to teaching, learning or scholarship using emerging technologies and tools that will enhance the educational experience of Lesley students.
- Promote innovation and experimentation with new tools and technologies.
- Support exploration of new trends for using technology within a field of study or course delivery format.
Funding is awarded to projects that bring new, innovative instructional and scholarly approaches to the use of technology that will impact students within an academic program at Lesley University.
Prospective applicants are encouraged to develop proposals that further their own professional development in using technology while also strengthening student learning outcomes via the new technologies or new uses for existing technology. Faculty who have never received technology funds and faculty collaborating with one another are especially encouraged to consider developing a project.
