Course Redesign Grants

Submission Deadline: The deadline for Spring 2020 course redesign stipend proposals is December 1st, 2019.

The funding will include a stipend of $1,000 per faculty member. Additional funds may be requested to support relevant travel or the purchase of needed materials.


Academic Affairs and the Collaborative for Learning and Teaching are actively seeking courses that emphasize innovative pedagogical techniques to enhance learning, both inside and outside of the classroom. Several of those methods have already been introduced at the High Noon Luncheons, including ‘flipped-classrooms,’ clickers and immediate feedback, enhanced undergraduate research methods, team-based learning, social media and blogs, e-portfolios, and more.

  • A brief—about one page—explanation of the way in which the proposed or revised course will incorporate new pedagogical techniques.
  • A proposed timeline for development of the revised assignment, syllabus, or course.
  • The likely frequency of offering for this course.
