2017 Teaching and Learning Grants

Reflecting the foundational commitments of the University of Calgary’s Eyes High vision, the University of Calgary Teaching and Learning Grants program is designed to enhance students' learning experiences at the University of Calgary.

The program will provide resources and expertise to support projects that integrate research evidence into teaching practice, generate new knowledge about teaching and learning at the University of Calgary, and disseminate the results of that work to benefit others.

The grants program supports these projects through three structural streams:

  • Practice grants
  • Lesson study grants
  • Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Grants

Within each of the three structural streams above, the program offers a special topic track for projects that integrate experiential learning into the design of a course or program.

Program guidelines, as well as additional information about the grants program, its three streams, the special topic track, and the timeline for proposal preparation support, are available from the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning.

The Taylor Institute will also be hosting drop-in consultation sessions and a series of workshops to support applicants in developing proposals for the grants program. Visit the Teaching and Learning Grants page of the Taylor Institute’s website for details.

Deadline for grant applications: February 7, 2017
