About the ILLUMINATE Grants for the Improvement of Teaching:

Full- and part-time residential faculty members, as well as online faculty teaching on-campus intensives, are eligible to apply.  Departmental or interdisciplinary teams of two or three are also invited.  Individuals may apply for up to $1500, teams of two up to $3000, and teams of three up to $4500 to implement new pedagogical techniques, classroom activities, technologies, class trips, and/or purchase materials that foster learner-centered experiences for students.  

Successful applications demonstrate effective active learning*.

*Active learning: In order to learn, students must do more than just listen: They must read, write, discuss, or be engaged in solving problems. In particular, students must engage in higher-order thinking tasks as analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Active learning engages students in two aspects - doing things and thinking about the things they are doing.
