CEU Teaching Development Grants to support individual faculty members in the development of teaching projects are available on a competitive basis with funds up to 2,000 euros per project per academic year. Teaching Development Projects should be designed to focus on inquiry and experimentation, particularly in areas outlined in the CEU Strategic Plan: greater development of connections between research and teaching; using new technologies to support learning; incorporation of problem-based learning; teaching with case studies; the development of interdisciplinary approaches to teaching; and other research-based teaching strategies.
Teaching Development Grant funds may be used to hire a doctoral student to serve as a Teaching Development Grant project assistant, to attend teaching-related workshops and conferences, or to purchase software or other teaching-related equipment or materials required for implementation of the teaching development project. The fund may not be used for faculty salary support. Grants will be available annually on a competitive basis. CEU teaching faculty members who hold formal CEU faculty appointment with the University over the period of the project are eligible to apply.
Project Support from the Yehuda Elkana Center for Teaching, Learning, and Higher Education Research
Grant recipients may choose to work with the Elkana Center through all phases of their teaching innovation projects. In such cases, Elkana Center faculty are available to collaborate with individual faculty members to explore teaching ideas and challenges that interest applicants as they develop their project proposal; consult with interested faculty members and doctoral student project assistants as they develop their ideas into pilots and small-scale teaching innovations; and share feedback and research insights during the implementation of the projects and follow-up activities, including possible video documentation and analysis.
