CATL Teaching and Learning Grants

CATL’s Teaching and Learning Grants support innovative, inclusive and/or research-based teaching and learning projects. This grant program will be of particular interest to those who wish to:

  • experiment with innovative teaching or learning strategies or assignments
  • pilot engaged learning strategies in a curriculum with an evidence-based approach
  • use academic data to understand and improve student engagement, or
  • evaluate the impact of innovative and/or engaged teaching strategies in a course.

Due to Covid-related budgetary limitations, grants of up to $2,000 will be awarded in fall 2020 and spring 2021 to support start-up and one-time expenses (materials, stipends, professional development opportunities, and so on), but do not pay for ongoing operational costs or a course reassignment. (In most years, grants range from $1,000 to $5,000.)

Eligibility: We welcome applications from individual full-time teaching faculty or from teams of Elon faculty and/or staff (the team leader must be full-time teaching faculty).
