Center for Innovation and Learning

Support for Teaching and Learning

The Center will approach technology as an enhancement and aid to teaching. We will inform colleagues of the latest in technological hardware and software and provide sustained instruction, tutorials, and workshops that present useful application of new resources. We will endeavor to furnish those resources that faculty need in order to implement their innovative experiments.

The Center for Innovation and Learning Fellows Program will provide both release time as well as financial and material support to faculty who propose innovative course projects. Funded projects will focus on teaching strategies and learning outcomes but they will not be selected solely on the grounds of technological innovation. Rather than promoting technology for technology's sake, we will collaborate with faculty to identify appropriate tools and resources that are likely to enrich teaching and learning.

Center staff and associates will help faculty identify and pursue supportive grant funding from external granting agencies. We will assist in the writing of grant proposals and we will provide pertinent research that supports grant proposals. Our goal is to ensure that the College and its faculty are positioned to submit grant proposals to the federal government and other sponsoring agencies.
