Looking for funding, collaboration, and/or scholarship opportunities that support innovative teaching and student success? Here's a quick rundown of some tech-driven options.
If you're not quite ready to apply for one of these opportunities, we've included other ways to get involved. For more campus-specific options, be sure to reach out to your campus teaching and learning center.
A $5,000 stipend to help develop new tech solutions at IU
The Next.IU eLearning Innovation Faculty Fellowship provides opportunities for IU instructors to work with learning technology professionals to explore and develop new tech solutions that support student success.
No deep tech expertise is required. We'll provide that. We're looking for innovative faculty and your ideas. The year-long program includes a $5,000 stipend and is open to full-time faculty from any IU campus.
We're looking for ideas about innovative uses of existing IU tools, exploration of new tools developed externally, and/or development of new tools developed in collaboration with UITS staff. We want to hear from innovative faculty who are eager to collaborate and experiment.
Other ways to get involved
Next.IU pilots offer opportunities to explore what's next in teaching and learning at IU. Complete the online form to participate in a Next.IU pilot, request information, or suggest a system or tool for consideration.
Work collaboratively with other faculty across campuses and disciplines
Be among a group of 35 IU faculty from across the university who will work to incorporate digital ways of knowing, doing, and making into your work with students.
Faculty will build individual skills, develop curriculum materials, and work collaboratively with others across campuses and disciplines. There's a stipend for participation. Fellowships are open to all full-time faculty, regardless of rank, discipline, or campus (part-time faculty who are also full-time IU employees may also apply).
