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.
The projects funded by the ILLUMINATE Grants for the Improvement of Teaching positively reflect the following National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) Benchmarks of Effective Educational Practice:
