Re: Call for Proposals – Provost’s Instructional Technology Innovation Fund

I am pleased to announce that proposals for the 2017 round of the Instructional Technology Innovation Fund (ITIF) are now being accepted. The 2017-18 application deadline is Friday, November 10.

ITIF’s three-tiered system is intended to provide opportunities for technology-mediated teaching and learning projects that explore and implement promising practices at different stages of their development and implementation, and creates a pathway for projects from their initial inception to their full realization. Recipients have up to two years to complete their project:

Seed Funding: Maximum $2,000 with no matching requirement.

Matched Funding: Maximum $5,000 with matching funds from another source.

Support Stream: Access to an educational technology or instructional design specialist for up to 150 hours per project, per year. This non-cash award is worth an equivalent of $20,000 that can be used as an in-kind contribution when applying elsewhere for funding.

Applicants must choose to which stream they are applying at the time of application. Projects that require funding of more than $5,000 are encouraged to consider the LEAF initiative or other funding sources. Complete information on the ITIF program, including the application process and requirements, can be found online.
