Teaching and Learning Grants
These grants will provide support for Dalhousie educators who are interested in engaging in projects to enhance teaching and learning, through the design and development of new or alternative approaches to enhance student learning at the course, department or Faculty level. The overall aim of these grants is to foster deep and impactful student learning and promote faculty members’ professional development of teaching.
This grant will assist in funding travel costs incurred by faculty who have been accepted to give a scholarly presentation at an academic conference with a focus on teaching and learning in higher education, or a pedagogical session (focused on teaching and learning in higher education) at a discipline-based conference. For this funding, scholarly presentations include presenting a research paper or a poster (finalized or preliminary findings), facilitating a workshop, or participating on a panel or roundtable.
These grants will provide support for Dalhousie educators who are interested in developing a project that studies, assesses, and/or evaluates the impact of a particular research question on students’ learning. This might include, but not be limited to, the development of new or revised initiatives, programs, courses, use or creation of open educational resources (OER), and/or methods/activities/assessments in teaching and learning.
Nominate an engagement activity that you developed within the last 24 months and that is still part of your current teaching practice. Two winners, determined by a review panel, will receive a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Grant for up to $1000 to support travel to a teaching and learning conference.
