Update on Curricular Redesign Grants 2012 and beyond

 The Curricular Redesign Grant (1999-2011) will no longer exist in its current form. The CR Grant has been incorporated into the UWS Growth Agenda Grant staring this coming year 2012-13. Please review the grant specifics at the Growth Agenda for Wisconsin Grant Program website [http://www.wisconsin.edu/acss/grants/growthagenda/ ]
The Office of Learning Technology Development and the UWS Learning Technology Development Council deeply appreciate the support and enthusiasm over the years from faculty and campuses on the CR Grant, resulting in some very outstanding projects that gained national recognition and local adaptation that advances and improves teaching and learning through instructional technology. We will continue to work with campus communities to share expertise, collaborate and exchange ideas in harnessing the power of technology in educating the 21st century learners.

Please communicate through the LTDC your ideas, success and expertise. Visit our site often.

Curricular Redesign Grant

The LTDC will not seek regular proposals for the multi-institutional Curricular Redesign Grant projects for 2009-2010. Instead the LTDC will lead one or two projects, following the original CR grant goals after careful consideration and deliberation, that have potentially high campus impacts, draw wide audience participation, and are eligible to all UW campuses. The LTDC however, welcomes input and ideas on technology-related initiatives in faculty and/or curricular development that leverage the creative use of technology and provoke extensive and measurable impact on student learning outcomes.  Please contact your local LTDC representative for potential project ideas.

The total funding for the Curricular Redesign Grant and the Emerging Technology Pilot Grants is a total of $100,000. We expect to fund Emerging Technology Pilot Projects for up to a maximum of $25,000, with the remainder devoted to LTDC led projects as outlined above.
